Parker Parley Pratt---Mitt's great-great-grandfather
Pratt was a Mormon follower of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. He was educated (unlike Smith and Young) and became not only a world-traveling Mormon missionary, but wrote the first Mormon book on theology.

He had 11 wives, but the twelfth would-be-wife was still married. Her husband followed the trail from San Francisco to Arkansas, where he killed Pratt after a horse-back chase.

The Mormons apparently retaliated against folks from Arkansas the next year in "The Mountain Meadows Massacre"



From Wiki:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Parley Parker Pratt, Sr. (April 12, 1807 – May 13, 1857) was an early leader of the Latter Day Saint movement whose writings became a significant early nineteenth-century exposition of the Latter Day Saint faith. Named a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in 1835, Pratt was part of the Quorum's successful British mission of 1839 to 1841. Pratt has been called "the Apostle Paul of Mormonism" for his promotion of distinctive Mormon doctrines. Pratt practiced polygamy, and was murdered in 1857 by the estranged husband of his twelfth wife. He explored, surveyed, and built and maintained the first road for public transportation in Parley's Canyon in Salt Lake City, Utah, which is named in his honor. Pratt is a great-great-grandfather of Willard Mitt Romney, 2012 Republican candidate for President of the United States.

I'm for Romney/Ryan, but thought this was interesting.
Pratt's memorial is just north of Alma, AR.

Yes, he was also a great grandfather of another Republican Presidential candidate this year---Jon Huntsman.

Miles Romney was known as

"a mass of putrid pus and rotten goose pimples; a skunk, with the face of a baboon, the character of a louse, the breath of a buzzard and the record of a perjurer and common drunkard."

That's some pretty bad name-calling on a deceased man. Must have been Democrats around even back then.

He designed and built the first temple in Utah, and other historic buildings.

Must have been before he stole his friend's bail money and fled to Mexico to set up a polygamy sect.
