Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Savannah Lodge # 14 Records (KC0170)
In 1845, members of the Odd Fellows living in and around Savannah, Missouri, petitioned the Grand Lodge for a warrant to operate as a Lodge. The Lodge was officially instituted on December 10, 1845 and worked under dispensation of the Grand Lodge. The following spring the Lodge received a charter as Nodaway Lodge #14. In 1860, the Lodge fell on hard times and in 1861 surrendered its charter. Four years later it reorganized under the name Savannah Lodge #14 and continued to prosper in the nineteenth century. The Lodge continued in the twentieth century, at least until about 1965.
The records consists of two volumes, a Degree Book, 1855-1881, and an Historical Register, 1846-1965. The second volume includes information from the first, but extends from the start of the Lodge to 1965. 1846-1965.
2 volumes (MICROFORM).
