Sat-Sun 8/5-8/6 Chatter, What needs put up

Here's a place to CHATTER about news we haven't put up, or put articles you found you want me to put up so I'll catch it.
A Catch all place, if you will!


  1. Don't know if anyone has seen this yet, my apologies if this has already been posted.

    When I was watching the Sister Wives, Christine had mentioned her grandfather had to hide and spread his family in different states. At first I thought maybe she was talking about the Short Creek raid. But I found out what group she was with and read her family name is Allred. Her grandfather Rulon Allred, who was the leader of the group before he was murdered by a leader of another polygamous group, Ervil Lebaron

    I want to apologize to all if I start going off on other topics. I've read numerous books about polygamous group several years ago and sometimes I remember information that I read. If I post something incorrect, sorry, my memory is not like it was.

  2. Rayne,
    I will put that piece up, and we can discuss it! I've been working on a genealogy, or trying to when I'm not fiddling with the blog, my addiction(LOL)--- and did you know, that Christine's mother was a Lebaron, Ervil's sister,
    So that makes Christine's grandfather killed my her uncle!
    It gets wild! I've got to stop one day and put it together. Tonight I've played with trying to learn twitter all night!LOL
    And connecting all our posts so you can twitter them too!
    Thanks for the piece!
    That's what I want, people to submit what they would like to hear and talk about.

  3. That's a trip!

    I would be interested in seeing the genealogy. I've read some books from different people whose families are in the fundamentalist groups and I kept seeing many of the same last names.

  4. I just have to find two more parents- Robyn's and Meri's moms, and then I'll have enough to show you all the big merry go round.

    spokes on a wheel my ass!LOL

    hmm, another tidbit. Christine is 1st cousins with Robyn's ex husband.

    Meri's dad is married to 2 granddaughters of the Allreds, which make her a distant cousin.

    Kody's grandma was an Allred.

  5. This reminded me of an old song by Ray Stevens called "I'm my own Grandpa". When I look at the lyrics I could see it applying to polygamist communities:

    "Many, many years ago when I was twenty-three
    I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be.
    This widow had a grownup daughter who had hair of red.
    My father fell in love with her, and soon they too were wed.

    This made my Dad my son-in-law and really changed my life;
    For now my daughter was my mother, 'cause she was my father's wife.
    And to complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy,
    I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy.

    My little baby then became a brother-in-law to Dad;
    And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad.
    For if he were my uncle, then that also made him brother
    Of the widow's grownup daughter, who was of course my stepmother.

    Father's wife then had a son who kept them on the run
    And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter's son
    My wife is now my mother's mother, and it makes me blue
    Because although she is my wife, she's my grandmother, too.

    Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild.
    And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild.
    'Cause now I have become the strangest case you ever saw.
    As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa.

    I'm my own grandpa, I'm my own grandpa,
    It sounds funny, I know, But it really is so
    I'm my own grandpa.

  6. HAHAHHAHAH Good one Terrasola!

    I'd like to see more funny stuff, satire, on the Browns.

  7. Robyn's ex is a Jessop, is that right?

  8. Meri's mother is Elaine, I think, married to Bill Barber. Bill passed away a few years back.

  9. First Wife - "MERI BARBER BROWN" "Sister Wives" Check out that post, I the July section, or may be in the bottom favorites.

    I have her mom was Bonnie Joyce Ahlstrom,
    Mothing on her dad, and her grandma Joyce A. Adams, no maiden name for her, was married several times, so I'm not sure- check it out and see if you can help me fill in the blanks.

  10. I am doing their ancerstry also. Right now I am trying to link Meri's dead sister's "husband" Jeffery David Kunz to Maurice Quincy Kunz another noted polygamist and leader.
