Past Masters

Past Masters of Person Lodge No. 113

Person Lodge No. 113 was chartered by the Grand Lodge of North Carolina on December 7, 1847. A fire in 1860 destroyed the lodge records, charter, and contents. On December 7, 1869, the Grand Lodge granted a new charter with the original date and number. With the exception of a period of dormancy from 1872 to 1890, Person Lodge No. 113 has been led by these Masters, three of whom served as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina.
