1859-1882 Masonic Deaths
Polk County TX
Submitted by Cannon Pritchard
    In 1828, eight years before Texas achieved her independence upon the battlefield of San Jacinto,
the first Masonic Convention in Texas was held at San Felipe de Austin on the Brazos River.
Attending the convention was Stephen F. Austin, the Father of  Texas. There have been many
Texans from all walks of life, affiliated with the Masons.  Local organizations of  Masons, called
Lodges, are located across the state.  Each Lodge is responsible for maintaining and submitting
records about their  members to the Grand Lodge of  Texas, the administrative body in charge,
located in Waco, Texas. The Grand Lodge published information from these records in their
annual report.
