An Old Time Party

On February 2, 1910 the Garfield Company No. 13 of the Knights of Pythias Lodge had an “old time party” in Sandusky. In 1910 there were three Knights of Pythias Lodges which met in Sandusky. The Western Reserve Lodge No. 128 met on Thursday evenings. The Courtesy Lodge No. 252 met on Monday evenings, and the Garfield Co. No. 13 met on the first Wednesday of each month.

A history of the Knights of Pythias, a fraternal order that began in 1864, is found at the website of The Order of the Knights of Pythias.

My gr gr grandfather was a Pythian Knight from Sandusky. I have his ceremonial sword. Is there any way to find out which local chapter he belonged to?
