In 1945, lodges in South Carolina and northern GA were split off from the northern portion of Area J to form Area Z:
Area Z (1945-49)
Bob White 87 (from J)
Santee 116 (from J; dis '45, rc '47)
Broad-Winged Hawk 129 (from J)
Atta Kulla Kulla 185 (from J; 1949 host)
Muscogee 221 (from J ; 1947 host)
Unali'Yi 236 (from J; 1948 host)
Mowogo 243 (from J)
Skyuka 270 (from J)
1945: Waguli 318
1945: Thundering Spring 324
1946: Hiawassee 333
7/47: Echeconnee 358
Echeconnee 358 was chartered after the first Area Z Fellowship in March, 1947. Also, Randy Yates (Georgia and Florida OA Area and Section Fellowships 2.6) states that a 1947 edition of the Unali'yi Leader reported that there were ten lodges in Area Z in 1947. This, however, contradicts the area list published in the August 1946 issue of the National Bulletin, which lists eleven as of that year.
