Subject: [MOHOWELL] Mount Zion Temple - Lodge No.327 Jesse Langley
Date: Sat, 14 Jul 2007 10:09:24 EDT
I have tried several times to reach the Mt. Zion Lodge - Temple on 300 East
Main Street in West
Plains. I sent a letter to the PO Box and one to the street address, and
has returned them both.
I know that at one time they were meeting on Thursday nights now and then
during each month.
I visited the Lodge - Temple and did not find anyone who would tell me
anything about the Lodge
from the people living near by.
I am trying to find out any information that the Lodge would share with me
Great Grand Father Jesse Langley as he was a 33 rd Degree Mason with the
Lodge and then Temple. My biggest question is who were his parents and
they living and or born??
Jesse was born about 1825 in Georgia/Alabama and died 09 Aug 1893 in Howell
County, Missouri and
is buried at the Mt. Zion cemetery in Howell County, MO
Jesse Langley was a 33 rd Degree Mason, on Masonic Temple Rd. West Plain,
His temple was first in a church building in Moody, MO.
Later it moved to West Plains, MO. The Mason Temple (Record page 43 – West
Mo.), June 30 – Aug 31; January 30 - Aug 31 1871, E.L. Srude Lodge 90 Aug 31
-1871 to December 01 1871. Jesse Langley was also a member of Eastern Lodge
no. 207 Arkansas. From Moody he transferred to West Plains Mo. Then he
Transferred back to Moody and started Mt. Zion Masonic.
I am related to:
Upton, Waters, Manery, Collins, Talley, Parrish, Nicks,
Romine, Carter, Barrett, and Vaughan
by Langley marriages in Benton Twp., Howell County, Mo.
