We have a mystery and need help


 
If you attended Lindley's 225th Birthday Party in September, you may have seen the owner with this cane. Apparently, it was made for the 1876 Centennial Celebration and contains local names which are listed below. It has been handed down in the Lindsley family but the history is not known.  Another Lindsley relative has been doing research and has compiled the list below.
 I am hoping one of the blog followers may have more  information about the names on the cane and the story that goes with it. Any feed back will be appreciated .
Please send any information or ideas to townoflindleyhistorian@gmail.com

Tip from Kitty:
I took a second look at Lawrenceville History –2006.   Not much on 1800’s but I did find some of these names were connected to business and that the IOOF was organized  July 14,1875.
