I found a couple of graves out in the woods, not very well maintained and from my research, it appears they may be African American. Both headstones have a side view of a striding lion, with it's mouth open on the top of the headstone. Below the lion is a downward pointing triangle with letters in each corner. Left to right, top to bottom: R, G (or C), and F. In the center of the triangle is the number 09. The inscription on both includes the following: Faithful Member of Lily White Circle No. 1320. I call this cemetery, the Lily White Circle Cemetery. What I am asking is this: Does anyone know what the Lily White Circle society is? What does R, G, F and the striding lion mean? This mystery has puzzled me for a while now, and I hope someone can shed light on it for me! Thanks!
