    I especially like the pyramid-shaped shrubbery in the front of the house. Nice touch!

    Wait a minute..."Pastor" Russel's sister in law was also his step mother?

    This is a bit of self-promotion. All sorts of things you may not have known about Russell and his associates are found in past articles on the blog and in our two history books. See links on the blog.

    Yes, the father and son Russell duo (Joseph and Charles) married the two Ackley sisters (Emma and Maria). That meant Emma was CTR's sister-in-law AND step-mother.

    Even more interesting ... the dad married the youngest Ackley sister. Joseph was 66/67 years old when he married 25ish year old Emma Ackley, making him more than 40 years her senior. Charles actually married the sister was two years his elder. 27 year old Charles married 29 year old Maria Ackley.

    I like it that there's a flag in front too.

    A little humor, reminded me of this old nursery rhyme
