Just to touch a little bit on John G. Jones. It did not begin in 1869 as JGJ did not become a mason allegedly until 1872. He became DGM in 1875. He was expelled from the USC SJ PHA in 1895 for invading the territories of DC, and founded the USC SWJ in 1896. He was expelled from the craft in 1904. His trial held by his home jurisdiction, the MWPHGLoIL, found him guilty of contumacy. The MWPHGLoMA initially wanted to try him and banned all masons from being associated to him or his followers. The Romanian story is a fallacy and has recently been debunked. JGJ never received a charter from any legitimate body of masonry as he was an expelled mason.
