Today someone commented on a post from 2009. They claimed that Storrs baptized the Russells in 1874. Because the comment is now burried in the archives, I'm posting my relpy here too:
There is no evidence that Storrs baptized the Russells. That is mere
speculation. It's also wrong.
Storrs did not see water baptism as
important. He wrote against it. Stetson, on the other hand, saw water baptism as
There are three good candidates for personage who

While we're glad you
read our blog, posting unfounded speculation as fact detracts from our efforts
to document the real history. This claim is an example of many speculations given out as fact that find there place on Watch Tower history sites. It is without documentation. You swallowed it whole simply because you read it somewhere.
We are very skeptical historians. If we cannot document something, even if we belive it, we won't include it. This, Russell's "gold mine," claims about his fortune and business, and similar things are usually presented as fact but are at best speculation. Some of the claims made are lies.
Good history is a well documented, connected story. Your claim is fantasy fiction.
