The man at the center of the 2013 documentary "Bridegroom" is now dating "American Idol" alum Rayvon Owen. In a lengthy note posted to Facebook, Crone describes how the pair met while he was working as a production assistant on Idol the year Owen became a finalist, how their instant and deep connection eventually restored his faith in true love, and how Owen has helped him cope with and honor the death of his late partner Tom Bridegroom (below right).
To anyone out there who feels like they are damaged from previous relationships, who haven’t met “the one” yet, or who have lost love as I did and feel like they’ll never find it again, I am here to tell you that it is possible.
In this segment, we will try to provide the information we have found for each of these children. A search of the 1901 and 1911 Irish Census records did not produce any members of this Tinman family. Also, in the 1860 record of the Battlehill Methodist Church there was a Conway Tinman (Battlehill: A Local History, A Church History, by Valerie Ruddell and William Newell, Ruddell Press, Portadown, 2000 -- p. The only known child of Sarah Lindsay Tinman was her daughter, Sarah Tinman who married William Hinton and was the a€?niecea€? that Alexander met while on his mission, as referred to above. It is clear that they had another daughter, born about 1908, after Alexander returned home from his mission, and she was therefore not mentioned in his journal. This is all that we have been able to find for Sarah Lindsaya€™s and her daughtera€™s families. This Bible is now in the possession of Wilson Glass, Grandnephew of Fannie Livingston Lindsay. With William being married in Jersey in 1859, he seems to have remained in the military for the next several years, and was probably still serving as a soldier at the time that his parents died--mother in 1865, and father in 1866.
Eventually William, Alice and Alex returned home where they took up farming on their old home site.
In his role as a local farmer, and a leader in the Methodist Church at Battlehill, life continued until 20 Oct. In the 1901 Irish census, we find William and a€?Fannya€? Lindsay, both listed as aged 62 and Methodists living in Ballintaggart (Richhill, Armagh).
In the 1911 Irish census we find the same William and Fanny (ages 73 & 72) still listed as Methodists and still in Ballintaggart (Aghory, Armagh).
Between these two dates, William was visited at their old home by his brother Alexander who made many references in his journal to their discussions, including a variety of religious conversations.
While the brothers loved each other, it seems apparent that Alexander took his LDS mission very seriously and wanted to convince William of the truthfulness of the restored gospel.
William seems to have had two happy marriages, but was not blessed with children in either one. She would have been about 25 years old when her father died in 1866, and so was old enough to be out on her own. There is a lot of missing information about her and her family, but the two census records give us a great deal of help in filling in some of the gaps. Shortly after their marriage they were posted to India, which was a part of the British Empire at that time and had a fairly large contingent of British soldiers stationed there.
The family retuned from India about 1879, not long after Alexandera€™s departure for for New Zealand, and settled in County Armagh. In the 1901 Irish census we find this family living at house 8 in Union Street in Portadown, Armagh where they were all listed as Methodists. His journal contains a number of brief entries showing a warm conviviality and a joy to be reunited with his loved ones in his old home country. Shortly after this experience Alexander was transfered to England and was only able to communicate with his family by mail thereafter. In the 1911 Irish census we find this family living in house 14 Union Street, Portadown, Armagh. In addition to the above information, there is a note that Mary Ann had been married for only 9 years; had born 5 children, 3 of whom were still living. We do not know of Elizabeth or William ever marrying, and we do not know what became of little Sarah, but it is possible that she had a family of her own with descendants somewhere today.
Our family records indicated that Mary Ann died about 1910, but it is apparent from the 1911 census that she was still alive at that time. She was still a young woman at that time and one wonders what happened to end her life while just entering her prime.
The three death dates always match, and in each one he says she was 31 years old when she died. In the 1860 roll for the members of the Battlehill Methodist Church, Dorothy Lindsaya€™s name appears as a member of the group that was led by her father, John Lindsay.
Dorothy grew up in the Lindsay home in Ballintaggart on the Loughgall Road with her other siblings.
Dorothya€™s marriage may have taken place while Alexander was away as a soldier in the British Army, but he married and returned to this area in time to know Dorothya€™s two little boys when they were very young. Early on, the Holmes family moved to the townland of Clonroot, which is immediately adjacent to, on the west side of, Battlehill, which is adjacent to, and on the west side of, Ballintaggart, so they were very close to the rest of the family.
Upon his return to Ireland as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1904-5, Alexander Lindsay visited with his brother William, and his sister, Mary Ann, to get caught up on all the changes that had occurred while he was away in New Zealand, and in Oregon, over the past 26 years.
While he was surely saddened to miss most of his siblings, he did get a chance to rekindle some relationships with the next generation, including his nephew, William Holmes. Shortly after this last visit with William Holmes, Alexander was transferred to England for the remainder of his mission.
In the 1911 Irish census we find William still living alone in the 19th house enumerated in Clonroot, Kilmore Parish, Co. Although William Holmes was still single in the 1911 census, he did eventually marry on 3 March 1920, in Ahorey, Co., Armagh, Ireland to Margaret Edgar, the daughter of Thomas Edgar.
As has been mentioned several times already, Alex was the youngest of eight children born to John Lindsay and Mary Donaghy. After returning to Ireland, and probably with the discharge of William from the Army, Alexander then enlisted for his own tour.
So, in the fall of 1878, with their baby just a few weeks old, Alex and Mary set sail on an old sailing vessel, which went south around the Cape of Good Hope in Africa, and then eastward to New Zealand. They Lindsays homesteaded land in their new country and from time to time traded up for larger tracts until they eventually bought 640 acres of land near Towai, Bay of Islands, on the North Island.


In 1897 missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came to this area and eventually the Lindsays were taught the gospel and were baptized into this church.
After returning home to LaGrande, Alex and Mary had a wonderful life together watching their children grow up, marry and raise children of their own. From the eight children (four daughters and four sons) of John Lindsay and Mary Donaghy, they had about nineteen known grandchildren.
In this segment, we will try to provide the information we have found for each of these children.A  Much of this information comes from Alexander Lindsaya€™s Journal which he kept when he returned to the place of his birth on a two years mission (1904-1906) for the LDS Church and will be referred to as a€?ALJa€? {The Alexander Lindsay Journals 1903-1906, transcribed by Larry E. Sarah Lindsay--born 1837, was the oldest child of this family.A  She married Edward Tinman (date unknown but probably between 1860-64) {ALJ p. In the 1901 Irish census, we find William and a€?Fannya€?

William seems to have had two happy marriages, but was not blessed with children in either one.A  He passed away on 30 Dec.
Mary Ann Lindsay--was born in 1841 (no actual date specified).A  At age 19 her name was listed as one of the members of the Battlehill Methodist Church, of which her father, John Lindsay, was then the Group Leader [Battlehill Church History p. In the 1901 Irish census we find this family living at house 8 in Union Street in Portadown, Armagh where they were all listed as Methodists.A  Mary Ann was listed as being a widowed house keeper, aged 60 and the three children between ages 18-22 with the two girls as a€?Drawer in Factorya€? and the son was a weaver.
It is within the confusion, struggle and chaos of these voices (every daya€¦ or even moment by moment), clamoring around us, pressing us, demeaning us, cajoling us and condemning us, that we barely hear another Voice quietly speaking in the depths of our spirit.
All of us have felt this tension and sadness of struggles in ourselves and with the world around us.
Our life is not one which just includes a routine of living our life, going to work, having hobbies, getting some things, finding some friends, getting married, having kids, retiring and dying. Only Three Possibilities of lifea€¦any it may be in our understanding of where we came from that gives us meaning in life, or takes that meaning away (as noted by Francis Schaefer).
Nothing made us a€“ we are fools made by enormous mistakes with no purpose whatsoever except selfishness, death and annihilation. A Personal Creator made us, knows all about us, loves us, redeems us from sin, and has an eternal plan for us! Choose what is most comforting to your mind given the fact that we are inexplicably alive, thinking, reasoning people who eat organic food to live longer, make fantastic computers, build Hubble telescopes, and send astronauts into space (but have no ability ourselves to create life or life-sustaining planetsa€¦in our home galaxy - the Milky Way). God, the Creator of heaven and earth, looks at His Children with loving Parenta€™s Eyes, according to the most revered, most published, and most affirmed Book in the history of the world a€“ the Bible.
Those who, in faith, accept the reality of Goda€™s Voice and apply its blessing to their lives, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, will find a peace that passes understanding.
Those who continue to listen to and believe the chaotic, confusing and demeaning voices of the world, flesh and devil surrounding them, will find themselves caught up and ever drawn toward the destructive vortex of the sinister tornado of spiritual deception and death that entangles and destroys the souls on the wide road of life, leading to destruction. Today we are looking at three ways that God sees us as His Childrena€¦it may give us a different way of seeing ourselves even though there can be overwhelming pressure in the loud din of the world, flesh and devil surrounding us!
When we look at the Bible and see pictures of who we are as Believers in Jesus Christ, in Goda€™s Eyes, it might be hard to perceive this spiritual dimension clearly.
12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
I recently found this article in the news about the problems of certifying onea€™s Jewish heritage in Israel.
The ultra-orthodox coalition is lobbying for the bill to only authorize the top ultra-orthodox rabbis to authenticate who is Jewish and who is not. How would you like it if only the pastors of a church or executive leaders of a denomination decided if you were a true Christian or not? Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul had to deal with in a legalistic Jewish system when they were on the earth. The Scriptures declare that becoming a Christian is by grace through faith alone a€¦not of doing certain things, or not doing certain things a€“ a€?worksa€? we call it a€“ lest we proudly boast about what we have done to prove the certainty of our salvation! The book of James clearly asserts that good works reveal, or affirm Goda€™s grace and saving faith, but are not the cause of salvation!
God looks on those who believe in Jesus Christ as Aliens in this World, but Fellow Citizens with Goda€™s Saints from the foundation of the world. God gives those who believe on and receive Christ for the remission of sins, the right to become Children of God a€“ God looks on us as His Children.
10 He (Jesus) was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. God looks on us as those for whom He has prepared a place and who will receive His inheritance. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, a€?Abba! 29 And if you are Christa€™s, then you are Abrahama€™s offspring, heirs according to promise. 5 he (God) saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 15 Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant. 19 And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someonea€™s own interpretation. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. We will be approved by God and unashamed as His servants, if we honorably know and respond to His Word. 14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Being Student of the Word of Life, the Bible, means that what we follow is not always the latest fad.


If we are going to know what the Bible says about our daily life, we must find out what the Bible teaches about God and how we should live.
Since God looks on us as His Children, Fellow Citizens with His Saints throughout the history of the world, and since He has promised to give His Children their Eternal Inheritance, we should be Students of His Word, honorable to Him, following the truth of His Word, seeking the leading of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives, and reaching out to bring others who do not know Him, into the eternal blessing of His Kingdom! The parents of his late partner opposed their relationship, and wound up banning Crone from the funeral, threatening him with physical violence, and erasing his likeness from the memorial service.
It may not come in the packaging you expected, or at the moment you anticipated, but if you are patient and open to the possibility, amazing things can happen. 10, 1905 --This morn after dressing I went to meet my Niece [this would be Sarah Tinman Hinton, who was then living in Belfast, and was the daughter of Sarah Lindsay Tinman] at the 9 Oa€™c train and her two children, bringing them home to breakfast, and then went on to M.

Keelya€? and had this girl--born about 1906.A  Remember too that Alexander referred to his niece as Mrs. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.
And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Father!a€? 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirsa€”heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
I hope that by being public about my relationship with Rayvon, others will feel inspired to let themselves be vulnerable and take chances.
I can’t predict the future, but if I’ve learned one thing from the past five years, it is that love and life are fleeting and I must live for the present.
