190 years ago today - 1827. January 11

Birth of George Q. Cannon. He served in four separate first presidencies. His thirty-five children included John Q., counselor to the Presiding Bishop; Abraham H., member of the Quorum of the Twelve; and Frank J., Utah's first U.S. Senator.

On one occasion he stopped in a cutlery shop in London and ordered three of their finest Sheffield razors for three sons who were turning twenty-one that month. "Triplets?" asked the clerk. "Why no, indeed," replied Cannon, "they were born several days apart throughout the month."

  1. TRUE! GQC had 3 sons born 5-22-77, 6-10-77, and 6-20-77, within a month of each other; so the above experience would have occured about June 1898.
