Flight from Mexico

By: Ardis E. Parshall - March 04, 2011

Marion G. Romney, future counselor in the First Presidency, spent his childhood in the Mormon colonies in Mexico. His family fled in 1912 with most of the rest of the colonists during the Mexican Revolution, an event depicted for readers of the Children’s Friend in July 1957. This feature was written by Kathryn S. Gilbert and illustrated by Erla Young.

  2. I don’t have access to my copy here at work, but there was also a detailed article about this in a recent Journal of Mormon History, I believe. Or possibly BYU Studies, but I think the JMH is more likely. A great story.
