Harrowgate Castle No.128 - Kensington above Tioga - Ancient Order, Knights of the Mystic Chain


Grave Marker



"The AOKMC was founded in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1870.  Though it seems to have been quite popular in PA, it doesn’t seem to have made much headway outside of that state—it is not listed among the top forty fraternal orders in the world almanac of 1896 and probably had no more than 10,000-15,000 members at its peak.  Like most small orders, it barely survive the Great Depression of the 1930’s.  Virtually all jewels, medals, and pins from this order seem to be found in Pennsylvania."
