From the article: Several adult siblings still live with their dad on a ranch near Kanab and at other homes. Three sons who broke away say LeBaron believes he must maintain the purity of his seed...The three sons fear their youngest sister will inbreed when she turns 18. Elend said, "She will be probably to another brother, I'm guessing, maybe my dad." And David said, "Through either that union or another inbreeding union, that they would create the future Savior, so to speak." He says the family believes it would create something like a reincarnation of the Savior.Awesome trip write-up and photos! We had a great time with you guys on the Feb Mojave run, hope you can explore more of this state. Sorry you did not get to the mines. Generations of inbreeding makes for some interesting characters in Kanab. This article just came out yesterday...best read to banjo music... ksl.com - Sons of polygamist making allegations of incest.
I don't know that we ran into these folks - - but we might have. The people in town in Kanab were very nice but when you get outside of town it does have sort of a Deliverance atmosphere.
Again, Vince and I were just hanging out, driving our rigs and not giving offense to anyone. It's great country to visit and explore. The vistas defy words. I'm going back and hopefully all can live and let live. The presence of California license plates seems to antagonize people.
