Semi-protected edit request on 24 March 2014[edit]

The following areas should be removed/corrected:

List of Notable Freemasons While serving in the United States House of Representatives, Crockett became a Freemason. He entrusted his masonic apron to the Weakly Lodge in Tennessee before leaving for Texas, and it still survives today.[157] Crockett, Davy. "Grand Lodge of Texas". Masonic Research. Grand Lodge of Texas. Retrieved 29 July 2012.

And replaced with the below change:

In 2013, it was determined that Davy Crockett, based on information put forth from 1895 until 2013, was not a Freemason. The basis of this belief was determined to be erroneous, but his name had been passed on to many "Famous Freemasons" lists around North America without appropriate verification.

Not done for now: More than one source is preferable in instances such as this - any more evidence for this view? --Mdann52talk to me! 13:58, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

I believe you are requesting that we create a category for Davy Crockett, because none exists at the moment. It's not a bad idea. I don't have time to deal with this right now today. But I'll try and get back to this. — Maile (talk) 00:40, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done unclear request - as explained in your previous request, above, there is no such category, so it cannot be added.
If you wish this category to be created, please request this using the category creation wizard. Arjayay (talk) 08:33, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I have created the category, as there are numerous articles that can be added to it. — Maile (talk) 16:36, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
