There is an unmarked photo with a man wearing a hat who looks very similar to both Raymond Gilmore and Clyde Gilmore.
In addition to photographs and the funeral card there were also two ribbons that were part of this heirloom collection. The first ribbon has a medal inscribed Hastings, the Queen City with the Odd Fellows fraternal symbol. The ribbon states 75th Annual Session Grand Lodge I.O.O.F. of Nebraska, Hastings, Oct. 19-20, 1932.
Another photo of the I.O.O.F. Medal/Ribbon shows that the ribbon is curling on the end.
