Life of Maud Rosalie Driggs Christensen -- Part 5

This part of Grandmother Maud Driggs' history is interesting because President Wilford Woodruff had signed the Manifesto which "publicly declared" that . . . the Latter-day Saints should refrain from contracting any marriage forbidden by the law of the land". It was signed in 1890.

However, the manifesto was not made binding upon the church members in Mexico until April 6, 1904.

Grandmother lived in Mexico in 1902-03.

To read something about how it impacted her life, you can find Part 5 of her story on the right sidebar.
