    I had a great, great uncle that was a Mason (discovered it by reading a copy of his obituary). Seems no one in the family realized it. He wasn't blood, so I'm still calling myself the first.

    After being initiated I talked with my father about Freemasons, I learned that my grandfather was a Mason.

    I am the 1st in my immediate family.
    After I became a MM I found out a lot of cousins on my Fathers side were Masons

    My grandfather was actually a Scottish Rite mason in the 50s and 60s, but when he decided to become a Baptist preacher, he demitted and never looked back. And he has always discouraged my being a m.m. but will never tell me why. Any thoughts as to why? It's always bugged me.

    Define family... In my direct ancestry, i never found another mason (yet). But im quite sure that some of the thousands of masons in my country are some how distant relatives. And theyre all brothers too...

    One of the things I realized that after being raised. Brothers came out of the woodwork. I thought I was the first but afterwards I found out my uncles and grandfather were masons.

    I am not the first. It goes back for as long as my grandfather can remember.
