For more information on the yearly meetings, below are links to Masonic Digital Archives proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Kentucky. I have selected representative years in each decade from the first State-wide meeting in 1800's to 1910's to list the deligates and members as provided in the reports from each lodge in Bourbon County. In 1863, during the Civil War, there were no reports.

Masons have a long history in Kentucky.  Dimitted or Demitted is an acceptance that someone wishes to leave. There are 33 degrees of Masonry.
Entered Apprentice is the beginning or first degree, Fellow Craft is a mid-level or second degree, and Master Mason is the third degree. Senior Deacon, Junior Deacon, Senior Steward, Junior Steward, and Tiler are appointed positions by the Master, while the other Officers are elected.

1800 PARIS LODGE No. 35 (No. 2) - First Year

Paris Lodge No. 35 was one of the Kentucky lodges formed before Kentucky statehood and was part of the Virginia Grand Lodge. 1800 marked the organizational meeting at the first Grand Lodge meeting for Kentucky. It was held in Lexington. Among the resolutions adopted was one to have a committee, of which Hughes was a part, to draft a letter to the Grand Lodge of Virginia "giving reasons that have induced these lodges to separate from its jurisdiction". The organizational meeting was from Monday, 8 Sept. 1800 to Friday, 12 Sept. 1800. Then the Grand Committee met on the 17th and made further resolutions, including chartering the Paris Lodge as new Lodge #2 in KY. The Paris Lodge was so numbered because it was the second masonic lodge formed in Kentucky, behind Lexington.

Resolved, That Brothers Simon Adams, William Sutton and Isaac E. Gano, be a select committee to draft a circular letter to the different Grand Lodges in the United States, detailing" the motives which have induced the Lodges in Kentucky to withdraw from the jurisdiction of their parent Grand Lodge of Virginia. ' . Resolved, That the Ahiman Rezon, published by Brother John K. Reid, the Deputy Grand Master of Virginia, under the sanction of the Grand Officers of the Gi-and Lodge of that State, dated the 1st day of .• • A. L. 5792, A. D. 1792, ought to be adopted as the rule of government, for the Grand Lodge of Kentucky and its subordinate lodges, except so far as subsequent regulations of the said Grand Lodge of Virginia contravene the same; which said subsequent regulations shall be in force until the Grand Lodge of Kentucky shall adopt and publish an Ahiman Rezon for its own government and that of its dependant lodges.

Representatives from Paris Lodge No. 35.—Nathaniel Williams, Tho. Phillips, Joseph Duncan.

"Resolved (as our opinion), That the following ought to be the order of the numbers of the subordinate lodges under the jurisdiction of this Grand Lodge, until by it legally changed, viz: Lexington Lodge No. 1. Paris Lodge No. 2. Georgetown Lodge No. 3. Hiram Lodge No. 4. 1 Solomon's (late Abraham's) Lodge No. 5.

On the first day the following were listed as from Paris Lodge:  Thomas Hughes, Adam Calderwood, and Joseph Duncan. On subsequent days, Thomas Hughes was State Junior Warden; and, Nathaniel Williams, Tho. Phillips, Joseph Duncan were present for the Paris Lodge; and produced their charter, with Thomas Hughes as Paris Master and Nathaniel Williams as Junior Warden, and as Representatives from the Lodge. The Representatives then elected among others from other lodges, Thomas Hughes as Sen'r Grand Deacon and Nathaniel Williams as Junior Grand Deacon. No Representatives from the Paris Lodge were listed on Friday but Hughes and Williams were listed in their State Grand Lodge positions.

1860 AMITY LODGE No. 40

On motion, the appeal of A.,W. Wallace from the decision of Amity Lodge, No. 40, in the case of said Lodge against H. T. Batterton and Fred. Fox, was referred to the committee on Grievances.
Bro. Cofer, from the committee on Grievances, made the following report, which was concurred in, and the resolution accompanying it adopted, viz: The committee on Grievances, have considered the appeal of Bro. A. W. Wallace from Amity Lodge, No. 40. Charges were preferred in the Lodge against Bros. F. Fox and H. T. Battertpn for.unmasonic conduct. Proof, has been taken, and on final action the;Lodge passed two resolutions in regard to Bro. Fox, which are here referred to as part of' this report, and read as follows: Resolved, That it is the sense of this Lodge that Bro. P. Fox has acted unmasonically, and that he be required to make acknowledgments to the Lodge, and that he pledge himself to the Lodge that he will conduct himself properly hereafter, and that in the event he refuse, that then, and in that case, be be expelled from the Lodge. 2d. In case he comply with resolution first, he he reprimanded before the Lodge by the Grand Master.  The record does not show any action of the Lodge subsequent to the.passage of this resolution. The resolutions do not, in the opinion of your committee, have the effect to expell Bro. Fox. It will require other action on 'ihe part of the Lodge, and until the Lodge shall finally bave determined the matter this Grand Lodge has no jurisdiction of the case. We therefore offer the following resolution: Resolved, That the.charges against Bro. F. Fox, in Amity Lodge are now depending and undetermined, and that said Lodge ought to proceed with the trial, or dismiss the charges, as may seem best to it. All of which is respectfully submitted. On motion, Resolved, That said case be transferred from Amity Lodge, No. 40, to Paris Union Lodge, No. 16, who is directed to .proceed with it, without unnecessary delay, and the Secretary of Amity Lodge, No. 40, is hereby directed to transmit to.Paris Union Lodge, No. 16, a. complete transcript of all the proceeding therein had in said Lodge.

1859 BEDFORD LODGE No. 243.

Representative to Grand Lodge:  W. M. Samuel

Some few of the Lodges, and particularly Washington No. 79, Zerubbabel No. 199, Bedford No. 243, Carroll No. 245, Pogue No. 335, and perhaps others have their partition walls or floors in such a condition that it is difficult to prevent eve-dropping, which should always be especially guarded against. In one Lodge there is no record book kept, but the minutes are recorded on loose pieces of paper, which are frequently lost. . From the loose-manner in which the work is done in some few of the Lodges; and from the broils and contentions amongst their members, your committee would deem that the interests'of Masonry would be subserved by arresting their charters.

On November 7, 1898, the Grand Secretary wrote me that in 1895 Forsyth Lodge No. 307 became defunct.

From: Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Kentucky 1899; p. 29.

On November 7, 1898, the Grand Secretary wrote me that in 1895 Forsyth Lodge No. 307 became defunct, and that he as the agent of the Grand Lodge had appointed Brother F. E. Baird, who was blaster of the lodge at the time it became defunct, as one of the committee to wind up the affairs of Forsyth Lodge, and that Brother Baird had received $98.00 by reason of the sale of the defunct 1odge's property, and had failed to pay it to the Grand Secretary. The attention of the Grand Lodge was called to the matter in 1897. During the close of his term our late esteemed and worthy brother, R. H. Thompson, as Grand Master, had ordered charges prepared against Brother F. E. Baird, but the Grand Secretary was prevented from doing so by reason of a press of other matters incident to the convening of the Grand Lodge.

With this state of affairs before me I ordered the charges preferred in the name of the Grand Lodge, Brother Baird being a Past Master, a non-affiliate upon records held by the Grand Lodge, and the funds misappropriated or unaccounted for belonging to the Grand Lodge. I appointed a commission of Past Masters, with Past Master J. Ed Ray, of Paris Lodge No. 2, as chairman to try the case, instructing Right Worshipful Brother Harry Bailey, Grand Junior Warden, to represent the Grand Lodge in the prosecution of the case.

Preparations for the trial were made, when Brother F. E. Baird offered his note with security for $98.00, payable in ninety days from date thereof, November 26, I898 The proposition appearing satisfactory to all concerned, I ordered further proceedings in the trial to be deferred, awaiting the maturity of the note. Brother Bailey in his capacity as an attorney at law, succeeded in collecting the note, for which service he was allowed $9.80 commission, and the balance $88.20 was paid to the Grand Secretary. Whereupon I ordered the charges withdrawn and further proceedings dismissed.
