The United Friends of Temperance, an abstinence society, was organized in Texas about 1870. The members pledged total abstinence from drinking and campaigned against the liquor traffic.
By late 1885, Council Number 443 had been organized in the Nacogdoches community of Fairview. Meetings were scheduled for every first, third, and fifth Sunday but were later changed to different times. Officers consisted of a Worthy Primate (President), Worthy Associate (Vice President), Chaplain, Recording Scribe (Secretary), and other lesser positions. There were also male and female Sick Committees to check and report on sick members
