I asked about the dates of the Ordination of Priest and Elder of Ralph Rowley and Ephraim Thomkinson at Bro. Chase’ Office in the Gen. Soc. And they said “we will have to leave them as they are with a ? mark behind them unless we can find another record.” The mistake must have been made by the Branch Clerk. They are microfilmed and cannot be changed.
