At a communication of Greensboro Lodge held on July 7, 1821 an Order was

issued to pay Zebulon Elliott $25.50 for "Jewels &c". From this information, it

is believed that the Lodge had just received the jewels and probably used

them for the first time on the above date. They were used continuously by the

Lodge from July 7, 1821 to August 27, 1959. Presented to the Museum by the

Lodge on August 27, 1959. There are only nine of the jewels.
