Hi,
I live in Grand Junction Colorado. After my father passed away, we were going through things and found a medelion that belonged to his father. My grandfather Frederick Tapey attended St. Andrews Catholic Chruch. The medelion is for a service organization. On it are the following:
ST. JOSEPH'S
Unterstuetzungs
Verein
D. R. K. C. V.
Richmond, Ind.
Gegruendet 1860
What I have been able the translate was this was a service organization founded in 1860. I would like to know what the intials D. R. K. C. V. stand for. Thanks: Cecil
