R.S.’s Traveling Card – Knights of Columbus

R.S. McDonald was involved with the Knights of Columbus.  He was issued a Traveling Card on 11/24/1919 by the Koochiching Council #1540.

This places my grandfather R.S. in Cheney, Washington by 1919.

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal benefits society.  This website explains their founding principles.  http://www.kofc.org/un/en/about/index.html  I called the International Falls office of the Knights of Columbus to find out if I could get more information on R.S. but they were unable to comply.  You never know about these types of organizations but it is still worth a try to seek them out and inquire.
