There is even a story of o recovered from Pearl Harbor in great condition. Their goods were shipped all over the United States, Canada and even Australia. The company was founded by four leading citizens of Columbus, Ohio all veterans of the Civil War. They were Mitchell Campbell Lilley, John Siebert and brothers, Charles and Henry Lindenberg. All four men were members of the Odd Fellows and published the “Odd Fellows Companion”, a publication of the fraternal organization. Through their newsletter they r many requests from people wanting to purchase regalia. They decided to produce the items themselves and thus a company was born. The company first occupied a small building at 253 S. High Street but grew into four large buildings at the corner of When the Depression hit in 1933 Kalamazoo, Michigan and the name was changed to Lilley business in 1965...
