Around 1900 in Abbeville, Wilcox county, Georgia:
"....Abbeville hosted a state convention for a black
organization called Georgia United Order of Wisemen
of the East of America for its 3-day session."
This information I extracted out of a book by the following
Mary Lou L. McDonald and Samuel Jordan Lawson III, The
Passing of The Pines: A History of Wilcox County,
Georgia, (Fernandina Beach,FL: Wolfe Publishing,1984), p.36
I have been unable to find any other reference via book
or internet to this organization. Does anyone else know and
or heard of this organization?
Thanks in advance!
