I think they're from a fraternal organization called Knights of Pythias.

Thanx for the reply.

That thought had entered my mind with all the early lodge and fraternal organizations....

The uniforms worn by the Knights of Pythias pretty much mirrored the uniforms worn by the US Army from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. I've seen lots of good looking insignia, that had it been US Army, it would have been rare and valuable. However, when that "sprig of myrtle" is there, it's not US Army, but Knights of Pythias.
