Masonic Celtic Cross

I love celtic crosses, so when I found the one below in Pataskala Cemetery in Licking County, I had to take a picture.

It was rather cold the day I was there, so I didn’t stand around and examine the cross very closely. Imagine my surprise when I got home and was looking at the close-up photo I took of the cross and found Masonic symbols in the celtic design.

It is the first and, so far, only celtic cross I’ve seen with Masonic symbols.

I’m a sucker for celtic crosses too and this is beautifully carved. The entire monument is quite impressive. Very nice.

Thank you! I’ve seen Irish symbols in a celtic cross before (I should dig out the pics), but never Masonic symbols — or any fraternal symbols, for that matter.

I probably have ancestors or collateral family members buried in Licking County! Thanks for posting the photos of the beautiful crosses!

If you know which cemeteries, I’d be happy to take pictures!
