W.O.W. Women

Women also participated in Woodmen of the World (W.O.W.). In the on-line article WOW: On the Search of Graves, Steve Johnson wrote that W.O.W. women’s auxiliary groups were known as the Supreme Forest Woodmen Circle, the Woodmen Circle, and Neighbors of Woodcraft. My aunt, Marie Bryan, was a young girl when she belonged to a Woodmen Circle in Seymour, Texas.  In the picture above, Marie is the girl directly in front of the tallest girl in the group. The tallest girl may be her cousin, Millard Ray Latta.


Myrtie Hairston Bryan, my grandmother, had a Woodmen of the World headstone.  This picture of my father, Whit Bryan, next to his mother’s headstone at Woodmen of the World Cemetery in Seymour, Texas.  Written around the emblem is In Memoriam Supreme Forest Woodmen Circle.


This clipping indicates that my grandmother was a member of the Daphine Grove No. 323, Woodmen Circle. 

W.O.W. will not be the topic of my next post; however, if anyone reading this blog has information about the Stephenville or Seymour, Texas Woodmen of the World Lodges or Circles, I would welcome the information.
