2. Story. A 150-year old Masonic apron has found its way to a Pittsboro museum, donated by the family of a Civil War officer's great-granddaughter. Family member Walter "Corkey" Harris of Pittsboro sayd "The Masonic apron was that of a Confederate officer, our relative Thomas Henry (T.H.) Foushee. The apron was worn in Masonic ceremonies. All Masons have an apron and non-officers are usually buried with them." Pittsboro's Taylor Masonic Lodge #144 apparently operated between 1853-1861, according to noted genealogist, historian and family member, Roger Foushee of Durham. The apron belonged to T.H. Foushee, who was born either in 1831 or 1833, Roger said. His home place was on Hamlet Chapel road, known at the time as Hillsborough Road, in Bynum. Foushee died in 1871. T.H. Foushee was the son of William and Ann Thompson Foushee. William Foushee was Chatham County Registrar of Deeds in the 1860s. (Chatham News-Record, 19 Jan 2006, pB-1).
