About Benjamin Wolfe

From The Jews and Masonry in the United States Before 1810 The Jewish role in the formation and leadership of Scottish Rite Masonry -- by: Samuel Oppenheim, 1910-02, source: American Jewish Historical Quarterly, Vol 19:

Benjamin Wolfe was an active member of the Order. The first record of him is in 1792. [238] The Grand Lodge then, on Wolfe's appeal, sustained the Master of Richmond Lodge, No. 10, in revoking a dispensation to initiate Wolfe after his rejection by the votes of two brethren who were alleged to have acted from private pique, it having been represented to the Master that Wolfe was an exceptionable character and would be obnoxious to his fellow members. Wolfe, however, seems after this to have been a member of Richmond Lodge, No. 10, being noted as a visitor from it to the Grand Lodge in 1795, and as a member of it in 1800. He also appears to have been a member of other lodges in 1802 and 1803. He was a member of the Common Council of Richmond in 1816. [239] Wolfe has been mentioned as a member of a Baltimore lodge in 1787.
