I agree from what I too have researched that Malcolm Rutherford did not have any children.
I am looking for a connection for Bonnie Boyd's "girlfriend" who had a DAUGHTER in 1929 and then she, Blanch P. Balko and husband, August, and little girl, named "Princess Bonnie", took up residence in San Diego at Beth Sarim, as caretaker/servants, as stated on the 1930 census ALSO stating, that Joseph Rutherford was the "owner" and head of said property and in residence also with Bonnie Boyd. I am NOT convinced that little girl is not Joseph Rutherford's and his girlfriends Bonnie Boyd's child. NO PROOF I know. (Like a lawyer and all around psycho guy would leave a paper trail for us to follow lol). There is no follow up for Princess Bonnie, as in marriage, giving birth or death that I have as yet been able to find. (Sometimes, information is out there, just carelessness in spelling or even some pages wrecked/burned/destroyed thru the years).
IF there was a change of name from Princess Bonnie Balko, to something else, I have not found it YET.
Adoption papers, I know of, from my nephew's case, do not state the real fathers name anymore. They state whatever legally you have paid for, for them to state.
This is my conspiracy theory and mine only:
Princess Bonnie is Joseph Rutherford and Bonnie Boyd's innocent victim, child. (Bastard is a bad word and not fair to any child). IMHO. Bonnie Boyd has her trusted childhood friend from Texas, Blanch, cover for her and probably hands her mucho dinaro, possibly, income for life, to take on this child as her own.
Who wants to go thru life as "Princess Bonnie" (Balko). So a possible legal name change. In my conspiracy theory Bonnie changes her name toooooo...Grace E. Rutherford. Marries 31 Aug 1957, Clark County, Nevada to Douglas Crawford Sanderson. Years go by, end of fertility baby at 46...baby boy born 02 April 1965, his name, Douglas Mark Sanderson. If this were true and not just an unproven theory,
Judge Rutherford's Grandson is now one of the Governing Body of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society!
There is a Grace MariE Rutherford. If the above Grace E Rutherford, put her name down as that, instead of Grace MariE Rutherford, all she did was put, yes, her middle name, just not all of it, just the last letter E, and forgot about the other Mari part...I will post this now and pick up on the thread of Grace MariE Rutherford and post next.
Who do you think the new governing member looks like?
