85 years ago today - Jul 23, 1934

President Ivins reported that Sister Nancy A.C. Williams ... is the wife of ... a grandson of Frederick G. Williams, one of the First Presidency of the Church at the time the Kirtland Temple was erected. She states to President Ivins that they have the papers and have been advised by an attorney that they could recover title to the Kirtland Temple in view of the fact that Frederick G. Williams had deeded the property to the Church for the temple site with the provision that if it were not used for temple purposes they could recover the property at any time. The Presidency requested that the Presiding Bishopric inquire into this situation.
