First Odd Fellows lodge chartered in Texas

On this day in 1838, the first Independent Order of Odd Fellows lodge in Texas was organized at Houston. Jacob Raphael De Cordova, Texas land agent and colonizer and the Grand Master of the Odd Fellows in New Orleans, visited the Republic of Texas to install members in the lodge, the first established outside the United States. Prominent early members of the Houston lodge included John W. Moore, signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and early Texas official; Texas Revolutionary War veteran Thomas Jefferson Golightly; soldier and printer Ezekial Humphreys; and official and railroad promoter Dewit Clinton Harris.
