I have recently acquired a newspaper photo of Newton's Rainbow Lodge #735. It shows 23 men who formed the Lodge in 1892; the photo was taken in 1894. The clipping is from the Beaumont Sunday Enterprise Oct 16-17, 1948.
These are the names of the men in the photo:
Ralph Gilchrist William Simmons (My ggg-grandfather)
Bill Gray C.H. Howard
B.A. Swinney L.B. Clark
C.E. Cade J.D. Clark
E.D. Downs J.F. Syler
R.M. Campbell W.R. Hancock
W.W. Hardy J.M. Horger
G.W. Powell W.M. Clark
W.B.McMahon T.T. Howard
T.J. Smith B.Z. Powell
Spence Mathews David James Lee
B.F. Gunter

If anyone would like a copy of the photo, please contact me direct at
