  1. Thanks for sharing. I don't recognize the star. Should I?

    Bill ;-)


  2. I wondered about that star myself. Now I am even more curious. Another mystery to solve!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. It is a symbol of The Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is a female companion organization to Freemasonry. Men who are Master Masons may also join. Their primary symbol in cemeteries is a five pointed star with a tip pointing down, representing the Star of Bethlehem. In the example at right the letters are FATAL, which stand for Fairest Among Ten-thousand, Altogether Lovely.
