There are a few more of these photos. One with my grandmother Ada Viola 'Fleming' Tabor, petting one of the horses. This had to be between 1919 and 1924. She and my grandfather, Frank Everett Tabor, lived in Coffeyville, Montgomery Co. KS. at that time. It was NOT their home. I'm lost as to where this ranch is. Fall early spring

Unknown man. Equipment is unknown to me also. Some family lived in Hemphill, Lipscomb Co. Texas, some in Lamar, Colorado, Montgomery Co. KS. I can only find modern Hunting Lodges etc. with the White Wing Ranch name and no one forthcoming with any history of them.

Pierre McFadden again. He was with the FBI for some time and a Free Mason also. Perhaps this uniform was for one of those? Sorry it's not a sharper image. Don't know the uniform.

Viola Upchurch I cannot remember the person who looked it up and sent it to me, but it was a woman at the Library in Pensacola, FL. It could have been the Escambia Co. Library, I simply can't remember. She was very kind and the charge was minimal. Also got a sketch of his home on Zaragoza Street?

Viola Upchurch We,(Tabor's) have a Henrietta Frances Estes 29th Sep 1838 who married Fletcher Willis Lemon. He was my great, great grandfather. Their daughter Laura Frances Lemon married Francis Wolford Tabor. [Henrietta's daddy was Jackson Estes and mother was Abigail Jackson. Is this the same line do you think?

Viola Upchurch Finally, now I'm sure. After writing to Mr. Kendall, I received this answer and will end my search. ANSWER:Ms. Upchurch, The uniform your grandfather is wearing is that of a Knight Templar, of which knightly a Trinitarian Christian Mason is invited to join. Of course, becoming a Templar is not a requirement and the Knights Templar organization is separate and distinct from Ancient Craft Freemasonry. According to the documents you forwarded to me, he was a member of the Santa Monica Knights Templar Commandery. I have copied Sara Nelson in our membership department so she may assist in looking up what Craft lodge he attended; these are the only records the Grand Lodge of F. & A.M. of California keeps Sincerely, Adam G. Kendall, P.M. Henry Wilson Coil Library & Museum of Freemasonry Grand Lodge of F. & A.M. of California 1111 California Street San Francisco, CA 94108
