Brotherhood of American Yeoman - The Brotherhood was a secret fraternal
benefit society founded in 1897. Its rituals and cermonies revolved around
Sir Walter Scott's novel "Ivanhoe". It is now extinct.
I guess one could learn more about the Brotherhood of American Yeoman if one
were to read Sir Walter Scott's novel "Ivanhoe". If I had a relative in
the society, I would get that book and read it.
