Where did they go #3.

William Morgan was born in Culpepper, Colony of Virginia back in 1774. He worked as a bricklayer and stone cutter. He married Lucinda moving his family to York, Upper Canada where he operated a brewery. It was destroyed by a fire and he moved back to Rochester, New York.

He claimed to be a Freemason however, those claims are disputed although he appears on the rolls for the doge in Rochester for a brief time. In any respect, he tried to visit other lodges and was turned away. This angered him so he decided to write a book exposing the Freemasons and revealing their secret degree work in detail. In 1826, he entered a carriage in Canandaigua to ride to Fort Niagara the next day, he never made it. In 1827, a badly decomposed body was found on the shores of Lake Ontario. Although his wife identified the clothing as what he wore when he disappeared the body was never truly identified as William. Thus no-one ever really knows the fate of William

I don't know much about the Freemasons, but I have heard of them.  Did his book hurt their cause?

There are still conspiracy theorists who believe in a worldwide Freemason cabal wanting to control the world.

Good morning James,

Many of the Lodges turned in their charters then and took a long time to get the membership back.

As the government decreed there could be no secret organization, there are many books of the Mason's today.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Good morning James.  This is a mystery.  I wonder if the Freemasons had anything to do with it.

When I was in the Military there was a huge division and recruiting going on... "white vs black masons" instead of free masons so I stayed away from it, but understood that either one helped to move up the ranks... I chose a different route, Endre

I wonder what happened to him. Whistleblowers of any kind tend to make enemies. Thanks for sharing.

Hi James,
I would guess the Freemasons didn't want their secrets exposed.  I hope the spirit of William Morgan is still haunting them.
