Determining if ancestor was freemason in Pennsylvania

3

All my life my dad and grandfather told me that my 2nd great grandfather was a Freemason, His name was Solomon Leighty he lived 1840 till 1885 in Westmoreland county Pennsylvania. He lived in or near Mount Pleasant.

Is there any way to verify that information?

Welcome to G&FH:SE. Have you tried contacting the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania to check if they hold any records for your 2nd-Gt grandfather?
