Oubiette, in reply to your question, "Are you saying that William Heath Sr. was NEVER a Bible Student or a JW, but he WAS a member of the WTBTS Board of Directors!?!?"
Actually I wasn't saying that at all, Athanasius was. He directly quoted me in the paragraph above, see the quotation marks, but not in the next and last paragraph where there are no quotation marks.
In explanation, if the first few words, William Heath Sr. was the father of are left out of the sentence, this is the way it would read:
Heath Jr., husband of Bonnie Boyd (Heath) and a member of the Board of Directors (as the Governing Body was then) of the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society.
Athanasius was trying to explain what I had told him but it didn't quite come out right when he wrote it down. What he meant to say was this: William Heath Sr. was the father of Wm Heath Jr., who was the husand of Bonnie Boyd. Wm. Heath Jr. was a member of the Board of Directors, (as the Governing Body was then) of the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society.
