This is a picture of The National Protective Legion. Does anyone recognize someone from Seneca Falls in the photo? Not sure where the picture was taken? Anyone have some information on this as being part of Seneca Falls or surrounding area. I found some research on when it started.

The first National Protective Legion Lodge was organized in Waverly on October 16, 1890 with forty one charter members. A preliminary certificate authorizing the Association to commence business was granted by the Insurance department of the State of New York on March 27, 1891. On the 17th of August following the incorporators having made affidavit, that at least two hundred eligible persons had applied for membership and that the total amount of certificates issued by the association was not less then the $ 400,000 the certificate having been issued upon the application of Edwin E. Rogers, M. Quigley, A.K. Gore, F.E. Lyford, P.L. Lang, F.A. Sawyer Dr. W.N. Hinton, H.C. Brewster, and F.W. Merriam.

Hopefully we can find some information on what it has to do with our area!
