The patriarch of the Apostolic United Brethren, one of Utah's largest congregations of practicing polygamists. Allred became a the prophet and leader his clan in 1977, when his brother, Rulon, who founded the clan, was killed by followers of another group of polygamists led by Ervil LeBaron. Called the "Holder of the Keys", Owen Allred led a flock of 5,000. Owen was born to Byron Harvey Allred Jr. and Mary Evelyn Clark. He served two years in the CCC camps in Idaho and worked for Remington Arms Company during World War II and retired after 31 years of service with Utah Oil Company (American Oil) in 1976. His greatest love however was service to his God and his fellow men. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints disavowed polygamy in 1890, which opened the way for Utah statehood. But the Apostolic United Brethren and other fundamentalist Mormon offshoots refused to renounce plural marriage, believing that the practice embraced by Smith conferred heaven's highest blessings. They see themselves not as outlaws but as true believers. (Adapted from obituary and news article).
