Question: While reviewing some gravestone photographs I took I came across a stone with linked chains carved into it. I believe the inscription F.I.T. was also carved upon it, do you have any idea what this stood for?
Answer: The gravestone you are referring to is a member is the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The three chain links "Three Link Fraternity"and the abbreviation F.L. (not I). T. stand for Friendship, Love and Truth. The Oddfellows are still active across the world and were started in Baltimore, Maryland in 1819.
