Newly discovered Otahnagon Lodge #172 Ochenang Chapter Neckerchief N1

DiscoveryRay Gould brings word of a new discovery from Otahnagon Lodge #172 in the Binghamton, NY Area. The Blue Book lists six known chapters for Lodge #172, two of which, Konoh and Ches Ches Nopa, were known to have issued neckerchiefs. It now appears a third chapter Ochenang also issued a neckerchief as a means of chapter identification.

While he has not been able to confirm this issue with anyone from the lodge yet; the design contains all of the elements you would expect from a Otahnagon Chapter issue. The Lodge number (but not the name), WWW, Red Arrow and the chapter name (and the spelling matches the ‘known’ chapter name).

You can see it below.

Otahnagon Lodge #172 Ochenang Chapter Neckerchief N1

A few minutes searching the web,

In the Oneida dialect written Ochenang, and meaning ball thistles. The place was afterward called Chenango Point, and is now Binghamton.

The Ball Thistle appears to be the plant design on the neckerchief.

Tentatively at least, the Blue Book Listing would be:
Otahnagon Ochenang N1 – – BLK RED – RED WWW, 172 Ball Thistle design
