The Ulster Scot LOL 340

A researcher on Orange history has uncovered the existence of an Orange lodge in the Killen district of Tyrone which was named The Ulster Scot LOL 340.

The lodge changed its name to The Ulster Scot in 1872 and the change was approved by the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland in December of that year. 

It continued to operate until some time around 1969 and I would be interested to know what happened to the banner and other property when it ceased to function.  It would also be interesting to know the background to the change of name.

Iwonder if anyone knows any former members of the lodge or anyone from that area who could help?
