    My grandfather was Theadore Earl Grow. We grew up hearing the stories about our ancestor Henery Grow. I remember being a young girl when my mother took us to the Tabernacle and then to the visitors center to see the plaque with a picture of Henry Grow. I remember feeling a strong conection with the tabernacle. Afew years back by grandmother passed and I finally have decided to pick up the pace and do our geneology. If you have any more information concerning this line could you please contact me. Thank You Jeanne Anderson

    To the best of my knowledge I am the last living grandson of Henry Grow. I was told by my father that Grandpa Grow had little choice in the design of the Tabernacle. Remember he was a bridge builder. He held the rights to build the a certain type of bridge. So that is what he did. He built a bridge or roof on the bulding. No one at that time knew how to build a roof that big with out supports or pillars. So he built what he knew how. My father was the last child born to Henry Grow and I was the last child born to my father Marco B. Grow. Their is also two living granddaughters. One in Nevada and one in Georgia. There were many children, I don;t remember how many but I think we are the only remaining ones alive.
