I don't know much about masons though my father in law had a memorial or something by his local lodge which the family attended. He was prominent in his community.
My limited understanding is that one initiates and then rises through the ranks. Wouldn't there be records of them before they entered the higher levels even if the higher degrees are not necessarily recorded?
I was with father In law at death. No toga was requested or oiffered.
I dont believe Catholics are accepted as Masons or they are not allowed (religiously) to join. This was a contentious issue between Catholic husband and his dad.
