  1. I just finished reading a biography about my polygamous ggg-grandfather. He was one of the men who went into hiding for several years, leaving his wives to fend for themselves. Unfortunately (and unsurprisingly), the book talked mostly about how it affected him, but not so much about his wives and children. After the Manifesto, he claimed to only live with his first wife (my ggg-grandmother was the second wife), but it sounds like he still had fairly regular contact with his kids and grandkids. I have really mixed feelings about the whole situation and wish I had more information about his wives. Time for me to do some research. . .
