HISTORY OF THE ROCKDALE IOOF CEMETERY
The Rockdale IOOF Cemetery, located on the Bushdale road at the northern city limits of Rockdale, was founded in the 1870's by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and today is maintained by the City of Rockdale.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is an organization founded on the North American Continent in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 26, 1819 when Thomas Wildey and four members of the Order from England instituted Washington Lodge No. 1.
Odd Fellowship became the 1st national fraternity to include both men and women when it adopted the beautiful Rebekah Degree on September 20, 1851. This degree is based on the teachings found in the Holy Bible, and was written by the Honorable Schuyler Colfax who was Vice President of the United States during the period 1868-1873.
Odd Fellows and Rebekahs were also the first fraternal organization to establish homes for our senior members and for orphaned children.
