Secrets, symbols and numbers by Android-shooter Secrets, symbols and numbers by Android-shooter
I saw three of these in the form of a fairly large triangle enclosing a group of Freemasons in Mount Hope Cemetery. If you look closely at the base you can see the number 28 carved into it. The other two markers didn't have any numbers on them. Any idea what the number means?

It could represent the degree of Masonry he had attained (there are 33 degrees in the Scottish Rite).

That's a good answer too, but this is just a marker. It doesn't specifically belong to anyone but to the masons in general. As I stated there are 3 of them in a triangular formation. Maybe it is suggestive the masons inside the enclosed area are all level 28, not sure though. Thank you for your input.

Ah, I misunderstood then.  I need more caffeine to improve my reading comprehension apparently.  :D

Drink up :D I am on round 3 here. Thanks for your thoughts all the same. You could be correct in suggesting that the people buried within the area are of level 28, who knows?

The number 28 has no particular significance within the Masonic Fraternity.  28 might refer to the Lodge number, and serve as a designation that all the members buried within the markers were a member of that particular lodge.  It's really hard to say for sure what the number 28 might represent, other than the Lodge designation.

Hey thank you for your input, I appreciate it. I was completely unaware if there was any significant value to the number. The thoughts you posed sounds like you are probably right on the money. Thanks again.
