can't remember if I ever sent you the Masonic docs re Col. John Griffith or not. He initially belonged to a lodge in Lauderdale Co. MS then joined another lodge in Arkansas.
When I visited Clinton, LA - where Griffith and the 11th/17th Ark. operated out of under John L. Logan - I noticed an 1860s era Masonic lodge bldg. Am guessing JG attended functions there...???
p.s. - my dad was 32d degree Scottish Rite
