Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen
Vigo, Lodge 16

Membership Rolls, 1881-82


Record No. 2 Grand Lodge of the B. of L. F. covering the period 1881-82, records the membership all lodges of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen for a two-year period. Frequently in the hand of Eugene V. Debs, the names of thousands of men appear throughout this work. On pages 34 through 36 appear the names of the men who were in Vigo Lodge 16, which was the lodge of which Debs was a member. This book was generously donated to Debs Collection by the Eugene V. Debs Foundation.

Below you will see thumbnails of the pages 34-36. Click on any of one of them to examine the original document as a digital image. Below the thumbnails the names for Vigo Lodge 16 which appear in this record book have been transcribed, expanded and corrected from city directories of the period as well having been formed into a single alphabetical listing with the last name first. Where it appears that the name was recorded incorrectly, the presumed correct form appears beside it in the listing. The emendations and notes are derived from examination of city directories, membership rolls of other lodges in Record No. 2 from which some members transferred, and local Vigo 16 documents found in other record books.
