Had he been, it is most likely he would have been a member of a lodge in Maryland, but the Grand Lodge of Maryland does not claim him as one of their own. Grand Lodges don't hide the membership of famous men like this, instead, they tend to brag about their membership. Additionally, there is no listing for him in the comprehensive book titled "10,000 Famous Freemasons," as there almost certainly would have been if there was even a strong rumor of his membership.
