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.
Reference: McLean and Riddle's A Golden Legacy: A 50th Anniversary History of the Dixie Fellowships, as quoted by John Pannell on his OAimages blog.
In September 1948, as part of the integration into the 12 Regions, the lodges of Area Z were assigned to Region 6. These lodges met as Area Z one final time in 1949 at Camp Old Indian.
