Biography of Mrs. Catherine BabingtonBy Karen Kidd Click here to order from Amazon
This re-release of "The Biography of Catherine Babington" makes Masonic history. Readers now can - as they could not for generations prior - read for themselves the story of the Catherine Sweet (later Babington) and her entrance into Freemasonry, as recalled by her son, JP Babington. Here is the story of this teen-ager who spied upon an early 19th Century East Kentucky Lodge, was caught and then Initiated, Passed and Raised into the Craft. And how she lived her life, as best she could, as a Freemason. The foreword by Karen Kidd, author of "Haunted Chambers: the Lives of Early Women Freemasons", provides new information, much of it a correction of glaring errors made by prior Masonic Scholars; and images not available when Babington first released this biography. This re-release may be disturbing to some. For others, it is an opportunity to review, first hand, the best evidence about this early woman Freemason.
