Thanks Barry! It's fantastic that you know so much about this person. I still haven't found much more on the AOGF aside from what I wrote here. I am hoping that more objects and information will come the museum's way. Thanks for reading our blog and commenting. Aimee Newell, Director of Collections

One of my ancestors, David Cashore (1836-1873), lived in Glocester, NJ and also in Philadelphia and was a member of Charity Lodge #12 A.O.G.F. Glocester, NJ according to his obit.

Thanks so much for reading our blog and commenting! I'm glad to know that the Good Fellows still exist in the UK and in other places. I hope you enjoyed the chance to see this box. Aimee Newell, Director of Collections

The order of Good Fellows is still running in the UK. Originally it was for unskilled workers and operated like the Masons. The headquarters of the organisation is in Stafford in the UK. It still has groups around the world.
I am a member of the Goodfellows.
