Texas Masonic Deaths with Selected Biographical Sketches - Michael Kelsey, Nancy Graff-Kelsey and Ginny Guinn Parsons.
There have been many Texans, from all walks of life, affiliated with the Masons. Information from Grand Lodge annual reports published for the years 1858 through 1882 is the basis for this book. The book is organized in three parts. Part One, Deaths Reported in Lodge Records, lists lodge member deaths year by year. Listings include the name, number and location of the lodge, the county where meetings were held, and the names of lodge members who died during the year prior to submission of the report to the Grand Lodge. Part Two, Biographical Sketches, covers many of the Masons mentioned in the first part of the book. The biographical sketches were created using information from lodge records, newspaper obituaries, and tombstone inscriptions. Part Three, Additional Information, presents the articles "Petition for First Lodge in Texas" and "Masonry as Explained in 1853"; how to contact the Masonic Grand Lodge; and a glossary of Masonry terms.
