    . He held various offices in the Lodge from 1860 until 1884.The family endured many hardships during the Civil War and the turbulent decade that followed while living in Rose Hill. They moved to Texas from 1875
    until 1879 looking for a better life. But, living conditions were harsh and hostile Indians were a problem to settlers in the area. Although some chose to stay, Jesse 2 and most of his family moved back to Rose Hill sometime in 1879. According to family legend, the return was precipitated when Indians scalped a neighboring family.
