    The gravemarker is a typical style of the "Woodmen of the World". Joseph Cullen Root founded the Woodman of the World life insurance and fraternal organization. It was reported that Root's idea for "Woodmen" came from a speech he heard about woodsmen clearing away forests to provide shelter for their families. Others speculated that Root visualized himself as the root that would grow into a shelter, protecting members from financial disaster.
