RQFC-topic: Sons of Malta in Portsmouth, Ohio
RQFC Details: I am writing an article for a local newspaper (Portsmouth Free Press) about the Sons of Malta and how they influenced Portsmouth, Ohio. I do not know where to start, I have tried the local history department of our public library but their records only go back to 1868. The Sons of Malta began sometime between 1854 and 1859 and died out before the end of the Civil War (this is all I have found on the order). This article will not slander or speak negatively of masons. I hope this article will give light on the good masons have done for our country, that is if I ever obtain enough information to complete the article. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
