Finding Oklahoma Ancestors in Masonic Records
In recent months I have been most appreciative of information that can be gleaned from studying the activities of the Prince Hall Masons and their various lodges throughout the nation. Both the 18th and 19th centuries, many leaders in communities were found to be among men who also were active with Masonic grand lodges. Also quite a few were from Indian Territory.
I recognized the names of quite a few Oklahoma Freedmen leaders and learned the names of some of their lodges. (A few will be shared in the link below and more will be posted within the next few days on the African-Native American genealogy blog.)
