The Boston Globe
The Romneys settled in St. Johns, Ariz., in a house shown in the painting at left, which is displayed by Pulsipher Eldon Bernal. The Romney home no longer exists. Some local residents had urged that Miles Park Romney be hanged due to his practice of polygamy. Catharine, one of his wives, wrote that some townspeople were ''as wicked people here as can be found anywhere on the footstool of God.''
