Presently listed on Ebay (item # 201421201130v) is an Order of Railroad Telegraphers membership certificate issued to Jacob Foller of Roanoke, in 1901. More accurately, it is a certificate of membership in the ORT's Mutual Benefit Association, the organization's insurance wing. Because the photographs in the listing are not clear, I wrote the seller to confirm the man's name. 

I do not need this piece, as I already have one. They are nice certificates, measuring 12 x 18.5", and display nicely when framed. 

I have never seen Jacob Foller's name in any records heretofore. Has anyone else?
