      I used to have an entire wiki page full of information on Maria.....
      So this will be a placeholder page to reconstruct and find whatever I can again on her....
      ---------------------------------------
      On March 13, 1879, Russell married Maria Frances Ackley (/məˈraɪ.ə/; 1850–1938) after a few months' acquaintance. The couple separated in 1897. Russell blamed the marriage breakup on disagreements over Maria's insistence for a greater editorial role in Zion's Watch Tower magazine,] though a later court judgment noted that he had labelled the marriage "a mistake" three years before the dispute over her editorial ambitions had arisen. Maria Russell filed a suit for legal separation in the Court of Common Pleas at Pittsburgh in June 1903 and three years later filed for divorce under the claim of mental cruelty. She was granted a divorce from bed and board, with alimony, in 1908. Maria Russell died at the age of 88 in St. Petersburg, Florida on March 12, 1938 from complications related to Hodgkin's disease. (See also: Letter from Maria Russell)

      She also had a foster daughter by the name of Rose Ball

      JW's use the term "undeserved kindness" while the rest of the christian world generally uses the term "grace".
      Is there a difference?
