Sunday’s Salt Lake Tribune included an obituary for Edmund Owen Barlow, who died of cancer Jan. 13. He was 70.
The elder Barlow was belonged to the group that would become known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Albert Barlow was imprisoned twice for "unlawful cohabitation." That was a Utah law on the books used to prosecute polygamists. Barlow’s was imprisoned first in 1945 and again in 1959.
But Albert Barlow continued living with his three wives and had at least one more child with each of them, according to court documents. So in 1955, the Salt Lake County attorney charged Albert Barlow again. He appealed his conviction but lost at the Utah Supreme Court in 1959.
Albert Barlow died in 1994 at age 91.
