Looking for information regarding Marbach Hermann Sons Lodge No 125. I have two old group pictures. One of 33 men and another of 15 women. Probably taken in early 1900s. Flag in background say Marbach Loge, No 125. I suspect it was located out Marbach Ln near Bracken. I would like to find any membership lists from the late 1890s and early 1990s. My GGF, Wilhelm Fenske, is in one of the pictures and I suspect more of my relatives are the pictures as well.
