  2. "A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort." -- Herm Albright (1876 - 1944)
  3. I have a similar story from my great-grandfather Stout who lived in Logan, UT with his wives. it was the 1920's and the local leaders were very concerned, but President Benson calmed them down.
  4. 1. I have been to Colonia Juarez, where my great-grandfather was Stake President after the exodus. 2. All four of my grandparents grew up in the Mexican Colonies. My last "church-legal" polygamist relative passed away in 1976, in Provo. 3. Fairly good knowledge. It helps that I have the journals of Anthony Ivins, who was called by the Church to set up the colonies. Fascinating stuff. Pancho Villa (Doroteo was his true first name) was a wild man and not very saint-like, but he loved the Mormons and he did what he could to protect them from the Mexican Army and the red-flagger revolutionary rabble. General Salazar was not good to the Saints. He and his troops did much harm to the members in the colonies. While polygamy was illegal in Mexico, the Church had an agreement with the federal Mexican government that no prosecution would take place for the saints. I think the Ensign magazine has had a few articles about the colonies, but they were few and far between. I don't recall any dicussion on the colonies in regular church meetings.
  5. That's awesome! You may as well add the music to the thread. I'm curious.
