James K. Poke 1795 - 1849
James Buchanan 1791 - 1868
Andrew Johnson 1808 - 1875
Abraham Lincoln- Abraham Lincoln was not a Freemason. He did apply for membership in Tyrian Lodge, Springfield, Ill., shortly after his nomination for the presidency in 1860 but withdrew the application because he felt that his applying for membership at that time might be construed as a political ruse to obtain votes. He advised the lodge that he would resubmit his application again when he returned from the presidency. God had other plans for this man weak conviction.
Millard Fillmore 1800 - 1874-- Thirteenth president of the United States (1850-53); Anti-Mason in his youth, he later was present at the Masonic cornerstone laying for the extension of the Capitol in Washington, DC, on July 4, 1851. He also was present, September 1872, at the Masonic cornerstone laying at the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane. Although Millard Fillmore was not a Freemason, his uncle, Jesse Millard, was a Mason in Michigan.  In other words, he wimped out on his first zeal.

Gerald R. Ford 1913--  Funded the Marxist coup in Ethiopia--  Invaded wrong Island to rescue troops.
Ronald Reagan-- Jim Shaw reports that President Reagan was brought into the Lodge while in office.  The official Masonic line is, "President Reagan is not a Freemason although he is an honourary member of the Imperial Council of the Shrine. President Reagan has on numerous occasions been involved in Shrine and Masonic functions throughout his career. In the Oval Office of the White House on February 11th, 1988, when a group of Freemasons presented President Reagan with a certificate of honour from the Grand Lodge of Washington, D.C., then he was made an Honourary Scottish Rite mason."  It was at this event that Jim Shaw claims that "a world famous evengelist" was also oathed into Masonic degrees.  Jim Shaw was iced shortly after publishing his claims in a book.
George Bush-- The alleged confusion as to President Bush being a Mason arises from the swearing in ceremonies at his inauguration. President Bush took his oath of office on the George Washington Bible which belongs to St. Johns Lodge in New York City. Because the Bible belonged to a Masonic Lodge many writers assumed he was a Freemason. The Bible was used at the request of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. This Bible was first used on April 30, 1789, by the Grand Master of the Masons in New York, to administer the oath of office to Masonic Worshipful Master, George Washington. Other presidents who took their oath of office with this Bible are Warren G. Harding, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Jimmy Carter.
