I was cleaning up a VERY old cemetery (latest stone was 1947, 2nd latest was 1906) with my FFA chapter and there are many veterans of the revolutionary war and civil war buried there. We came across this flag holder/marker and we have no idea what it is. The stone it was beside was made of marble and corroded to the point that its illegible. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm thinking a fraternal order.
