The above photo and the photo below were found by Beverly Lee while cleaning out her
grandparent's home. She states: "
I have no idea who any of these
men are, nor do I know when it was
taken. I can barely read the transcription written at the
think it says Masonic Grand Lecturen and District Deputy ?? Masters
Taken at Acherman, MS ??
assuming maybe one of these men's last name might be Gilbert
and that's why the picture was in with all of my great-grandmother's
things. If you are able to recognize any of these men or know of
someone who'd like to see a copy of this, please let me know.
have found several group photos that no one in my immediate
family can identify. I do not know if the sashes of the gentlemen
don't know anything about Masonic groups, so forgive my
ignorance. I did find out that my great-great grandfather had a
Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star in Chunky, MS named after
him. His name was Spencer B. Gilbert. I found this
information on the
obituary of one of my great-grandmother's sister. Apparently
she was a
Worthy Grand Matron for 2 years of this Chapter. But I can find
listing for it on the internet.
