Over the past few months, a lot has been done about Christine Brown’s close family.
And for good reason, too.
The family has appeared in Sister Wives for 16 seasons, and as Christine turned into a bad dog late last year, it split somewhat in November when the mother of six decided to move away from spiritual wife Cody.
But we’re not here to talk about Brown, which you see on television.
We’re here to dive deep into Christine’s many large family trees.
And you ribbon up well, folks!
Although she hesitates to talk much about it (because that will become clear soon), Christine was born into a famous polygamous family, Allreds.
The most well-known member of this large clan was a man named Erville LeBron, who had 23 wives and 51 children … and who was Christine’s uncle.
LeBron was the leader of a polygamous Mormon fundamentalist group that used the religious doctrine of blood atonement to justify the killings and ordered the assassination of many of his opponents.
In 1972, Erville opened the Church of the First Born of the Lamb of God in San Diego, California.
That same year, he ordered the killing of his own brother.
In April 1975, LeBron ordered the assassination of Bob Simmons, a polygamist who wanted to be a minister for Native Americans, and two years later, he was assassinated by Rullen C. Ordered the assassination of Allred, who was the leader of another Mormon fundamentalist community.
Many of these killings were carried out by LeBron’s wives, some of whom were minors, and / or LeBron’s children.
At one point, LeBron – nicknamed “Mormon Manson” – even tried to execute another sibling, Rulan.
Rulan, however, survived the plot and continued to work on his ancestral line … one of whom was Christine Brown.
In fact, Rulan is Christine’s grandfather.
In 1980, a year after his capture in Mexico and extradition to the United States, LeBron was sentenced to life in prison in Utah State, Draper, Utah, where he died on August 16, 1981.
It’s complex and messy and doesn’t reflect on Christine’s self in any way.
But it’s certainly interesting, isn’t it?
And, in some small way, it says so SomethingPolygamy is a cult-like issue.
Christine spoke to Christine’s cousin, Anna LeBron, in The Sun, just after Cody left in November.
As a runaway from a polygamous family at the age of 13, Anna can speak from experience of plural marriage and has a penchant for certain types of people.
“It’s very common for a woman to leave a polygamous relationship and move on to a new one because it’s a familiar area,” Anna explained at the time, referring to Christine and continuing as follows:
“It simply came to our notice then. I wish her well and I hope she will do well and be happy with whatever she follows. “
It is noteworthy that Anna never met Christine.
This did not prevent the former from commenting later, however:
“I hope he gets the care and support he needs. This decision is difficult after 25 years of marriage. There is going to be grief and sadness. My hope is that she will be healed and lead a life that will bring her joy, peace and happiness.
“It simply came to our notice then. I’m proud of her for taking the initiative to be the person she wants to be in this life. “
Brown seems very, very happy with his decision to return to Utah and start again.
Did he have polygamy?
The reality star’s son recently answered that question.
