Well Michael, You are the first to post on this, but I have learned that I am a 4th Generation Mason. From Joseph Enos Kessinger down to me. I checked with the Grand Lodge of Illinois to see if Silas Kessinger was listed and there wasn't any record, he may have been a member in Kentucky and never transfered, but I doubt it. I still believe that a number of Kessingers are Masons because of the straight and upright way of living. They have given me a few other Kessingers. I would like to make a list of Kessinger Masons to add to the Kessinger book that Deloris is making.
