Nicholas E. Oldham was the first Worshipful Master of Sparta Lodge #99, and served in that chair from 1842-1846 and from 1849-1851. He was born in Virginia on May 4, 1800 and died in Texas on November 11, 1877. He served as White County Court Clerk from 1835-1844.
In his later years, he served as Secretary of his Texas Lodge and was noted as "One of the best Scribes with a Goose Quill Pen." His dedication and service, though many years ago, laid the foundation for Masonry in the Sparta area. Because of his dedication, our Council is named in his honor.
