Silas H. Shepherd
Lodge of Research #1843 F & A M
Silas H. Shepherd was born in Illinois on March 7, 1874. He was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in Hartland Lodge No. 122 F. & A. M., in Hartland, WI. He was Worshipful Master of No. 122, and there is some evidence it was about 1915. He also became a Scottish Rite Mason. Silas was chairman of the Wisconsin Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic Research for many years and the author of many books and poems. Silas retired to San Diego, California, in 1934, where he was elected International Secretary of the Philalethes Society. He was also associate editor of the Masonic News of San Diego. Silas Shepherd passed away suddenly on Wednesday, March 20, 1946, in that city. Last Rites were held on March 23, in Rogers Chapel, under the auspices of Silver Gate Lodge No. 296, F. & A. M. He was survived by his wife Amelia, two daughters and five sons.
