     On 31 October – 2 November 2013, the Texas State Genealogical Society (TSGS) is holding its annual fall conference in Round Rock, Texas. A wide variety of classes will be available to researchers at all levels of experience. For details about classes, costs, and lodging, go to the website at www.txgs.org.


     This week we will list names of members of the Rising Star Chapter in San Augustine, Texas, for 1878-1879. The data can be found on page 78 of TRANSACTIONS OF THE M. E. GRAND ROYAL ARCH CHAPTER OF TEXAS AT ITS THIRTIETH ANNUAL CONVOCATION HELD AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE, IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON, ON THURSDAY, THE ELEVENTH DAY OF DECEMBER, A. D. 1879, A. I. 2409, AT THREE O’CLOCK P. M., which was published in Houston by W. H. Coyle, Printer and Lithographer, in 1880. (In the title, the M and E are each followed by three dots, representing the Triple Tau emblem of the organization. However, for simplicity, a period is used in this column. Because many of organization’s names of offices also include the Triple Tau emblem, only the initials of those ranks will be used in this column.)
