Joseph Ralph M28P-7N9
I am researching the missionary service of Ebenezer Clawson Richardson, and I located a letter Ebenezer wrote to Joseph Ralph in the Church History Library at https://catalog.churchofjesuschrist.org/assets/40237e47-2eac-478f-9d09-7527373d8c9c/0/5
The letter suggests to me that Joseph Ralph may have been a member of the Church there in South Africa at the time Ebenezer was servings. However, the ordinance tab is showing a baptism from 1977. I'm wondering if there is possibly a missing baptism date.
The birth and death dates on the Family Tree record match exactly with the birth and death dates in the Church History Library catalogue, so I believe I have the right person. Is there any way to locate the original baptism dates? I suspect other members of his family were likely baptized at the same time, and the baptism would have been in South Africa and reported to the Church.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
