Hugh Findlay - Conversion

Conversion

Findlay was baptized in Dundee, Scotland, on July 1, 1844, by missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He married Isabella Ratray that same year. Between 1847 and 1848, Isabella and the two little boys she and Findlay had together, James and Ephraim, died in what was probably a diphtheria epidemic. Both boys were under two years old.

Orson Pratt recorded the following about a case of "miraculous healing" involving Findlay in Scotland:

I have a girl, aged three years, who had for eighteen months been afflicted with convulsive fits ... the child was fearful to behold, almost in continual convulsions by night and day. On the 25th of December last, Elder Hugh Findlay called and anointed her with oil in the name of the Lord and prayed for her, and from that day until now she has never had a fit... For the truth of which, witness our hands,

James Davidson, Maria Davidson, Hugh Findlay

While in England, Findlay engaged in public debates with anti-Mormon ministers from other faiths. He was serving as a district president (head of the Hull Conference) in England when Lorenzo Snow called him and William Willes to serve a mission in South Asia.
