The early history of Augusta Lodge #1 is very vague. The earliest records held by the State Office involve their reactivation on 08-08-73. In a letter to O. T. Ivey Jr. on 10-20-73, State Lodge Secretary Pete Stafford advises that he had obtained information that indicates Augusta Lodge #1 was charted in 1954. In response to an inquiry by the Georgia State Lodge in 2002, the National Lodge Office advises that no records can be located pertaining to the original chartering of Augusta Lodge #1. After reorganizing in 1973, the lodge was renamed Frank (Hank) Wall Lodge #1. The members received much opposition from their department's administration while trying to reorganize. This resulted in the lodge quickly going inactive again. Records indicate that Brother Stafford made frequent contact with Augusta members trying to help them sustain the lodge.

There is apparently no early history available for Albany Lodge #2. In a letter to Brother Stafford dated 12-15-76, Secretary Sherry McLeod wrote that there was no membership or any other records for their lodge other than some old financial reports. On 09-25-77, the lodge organized an associate membership and challenged the City's administration over pay and working condiditons. They gained some degree of success and gained the support of may business leaders.
