OOBADOSTOOM (Mystic Order Of The Sons Of Daniel Boone) - Existed in the Jefferson City Council in the 1930's in Missouri at Camp Maries which was on the Maries River. If you take the first letters of Mystic Order Of The Sons Of DAniel BOOne and spell it backwards you have "OOBADOSTOOM". The ordeal consisted of candidates piling into a car then driving to Daniel Boone's last home near Wentzville, Missouri and sleeping in the Boone Family Cemetary for one night. Candidates had to place their hands on different tombstones in the dark and then write down whatever feelings or "messages" they received. It is unknown if the society had a patch. There are two known surviving members of the society, both of whom are Eagle Scouts and attended the 1933 World Jamboree.
