Endangered Graves Hwy 391 Sisters of the Single Star

There is an endangered cemetary off of Hwy 391 in Pulaski County. I was just there this week and sadly the area surrounding is being developed so quickly I am afraid this place will be lost. I am only able to get to three graves at this time due to overgrowth. They are all women and it says on each headstone the belong to the Sisters of the Single Star chapter #402. The oldest grave I can get to belongs to a Rhooda or Rhonda Powell died 1912. The other two list deaths of 1920 and 1926. There is a symbol on each headstone that does not match any Masonic or Eastern Star. I intend on getting pics and rubbings of these but the buisness owner near the site is being very gruff. I can not find ANYTHING about these women or their group. Does anyone have any info? The headstones have been knocked over and I can tell one at least was done by a backhoe. Please help. These women were someones family and I dont want them to get lost to urban development.
