120 years ago today - May 1, 1904

In Salt Lake City Hannah Grover Hegsted becomes the third wife (and second living wife) of Bishop Victor C. Hegsted fourteen years after the first Manifesto was issued, and a month after the so-called Second Manifesto. Their marriage had been approved by an apostle the year before. No disciplinary action is ever brought against them. However Hegsted is released as Bishop of the Salem, Idaho ward the next year and Hannah quits her position at Ricks Academy.
