About Maria Lawrence

A wikpedia article on Joseph Smiths plural wives implies that that Maria Lawrence went onto marry Brigham Young: "...(b. December 18, 1823, Pickering Township, Ontario - d.? Nauvoo, Illinois) Sister of Sarah. After Smith's death, Lawrence married Brigham Young, becoming his sixteenth plural wife. They divorced in 1845, but remarried the following year.[28]..."

But looking at the source of that info (Jerald and Sandra Tanner website) it doesn't actually show a marriage to Brigham Young and Maria Lawrence. So I'm deleting from a Maria Lawrence and Brigham marriage. [rstebbing]
