About Marion George Romney

Wikipedia Biographical Summary

"...Marion George Romney (September 19, 1897 – May 20, 1988) was an apostle and a member of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

Romney was born in Colonia Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, to parents who had come from the United States. His grandparents on both sides had left the U.S. to avoid prosecution under laws prohibiting the Mormon practice of plural marriage. Romney was the son of George S. Romney and a cousin of Michigan governor George W. Romney, who was born in nearby Colonia Dublan and is the father of 2008 Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. His mother was Teressa Artemesia Redd daughter of Lemuel Hardison Redd and Sariah Louisa Chamberlain. His parents were married in Colonia Juarez in 1894. Marion Romney was the oldest of their ten children. Romney's younger sister, Lurlene Romney Cheney, was baptized in the Roman Catholic church and later became Sister Mary Catherine of the Carmelite order, a cloistered nun, at the Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Holladay, Utah.
