The United Order of Foresters

 United Order of Foresters,

David Thompson scan

The Foresters were and are a mutual aid society that originally began in England in the 14th century.  Much of their modern manifestation is through the insurance business.  The United Order of Foresters seems to have been particularly strong in Wisconsin and the upper midwest at the turn of the century. It is likely that this stamp was used on a check.
