115 years ago today - Jul 3, 1906

It was moved by Elder Charles W. Penrose and seconded by a number of the brethren and unanimously carried that Brothers John W. Taylor and Matthias F. Cowley withdraw themselves from laboring in the ministry and confine themselves to the caring of their families and attending to their personal affairs as lay members of the church. They had resigned from the council because they were out of harmony with the council on the question of plural marriage. Consequently they were no longer engaged in any sense as members of the council.
