    Footnote 14 reads

    14 Death of Thomas Birney, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Press, January 17, 1899. The obituary misnames his
    partner as James R. Woodwell. The membership list for St. John’s Lodge is found in An Address Delivered at the
    Request of St. John’s Lodge, no. 219, F. & A.M. at the 444th Stated Meeting, April 12th, 1883, on the History of
    the Lodge, and the Establishment of Freemasonry in Pittsburgh. Thomas Birney’s name appears in the
    membership list on page 112. No Russells find a place on the list, nor do they receive other mention. For details
    see Appendix One.

    Old Goat who posts here sometimes is a friend. But I'm here mostly to just observe. I have an academic, not a polemic interest. Thanks for the welcome NN

    Welcome Vienne! Do you have a referral link for me to use when I buy your book from Amazon?

    Please I find it absolutly incredible that Mr Schulz, could write such a book, and not at the very least end up in the back room about it.

    joe, have you read the book? It's verifiable history. Hard to fault that. The WTS has a copy and never expressed an objection to it. Bruce is an old timer who's lived a significant amount of watchtower history. Our books are JUST history. There is no agenda but detailed, factual history. Hard to fault that.

    Wasn't Richard Rawe a well known apostate? Did Nathan Natas say B W Schulz was friends with Rawe?
