The following officers of Forest Queen Lodge No. 321, I.O.O.F., were installed by district deputy, C.H. Sheldon, Thursday evening last. M. Lund, N.D.; A. Kernigha, V.G.; C. L. Adams, Sec.; and T.O. Mosher, Treas.

C.H. Sheldon was Charles H. Sheldon - C.L. Adams was Charles Lindsay Adams

Notice that it is called the Forest Queen Lodge

"In 1881, J.H. Sargent built the Forest Queen Hotel and opened it in the fall." I don't know if I.O.O.F moved to, or from, the Forest Queen but I have a photo is taken much later than 1881 when the Lodge was housed in the Hardware store owned and operated by my great grandfather, Charles Sheldon.

Charles Adams, also my great grandfather, was born in 1879 and the Adams family did not arrive in Clark County until 1883 or later from West Virginia.
