     This week we will begin listing the names of members of the Royal Arch Masons chapter in Sulphur Springs, Hopkins County, Texas, for the years 1878-1879. The data can be found on pages 97-98 of TRANSACTIONS OF THE M. E. GRAND ROYAL ARCH CHAPTER OF TEXAS AT ITS THIRTIETH ANNUAL CONVOCATION HELD AT THE MASONIC TEMPLE, IN THE CITY OF HOUSTON, ON THURSDAY, THE ELEVENTH DAY OF DECEMBER, A. D. 1879, A. I. 2409, AT THREE O’CLOCK P. M., which was published in Houston by W. H. Coyle, Printer and Lithographer, in 1880. (In the title, the M and E are each followed by three dots, representing the Triple Tau emblem of the organization. However, for simplicity, a period is used in this column. Because many of the organization’s names of offices also include the Triple Tau emblem, only the initials of those ranks will be used in this column.)
