Contributor Notes:  This most likely is not a complete list of lodge members at that time.  The list was written on Winfield Lodge letterhead notepaper 5-3/4" x 9-1/2" in size.  It was written to "Wallace," who would be Wallace Washington Dawkins, and signed by "Thos Yates" who would be Thomas Samuel Yates, half-brother to Wallace's wife, Eliza Sophronia Yates.  By 1907, Wallace had moved from Lincoln County to Ford County, Kansas, but he remained very active in lodge activities.  He would have received this list by mail from his brother-in-law.
