Paul Elden Kingston is an accountant and attorney who has served as the Trustee-in-Trust of the Davis County Cooperative Society (DCCS or Co-op), a sect which broke off from the American Latter Day Saint movement, since 1987.
Kingston succeeded his father John Ortell Kingston as the Trustee-in-Trust of the DCCS upon his father's death in 1987. During his tenure, Kingston has followed his father's practice of plural, and intra-family marriage, although neither is practiced by the majority of members and the practice is not required to gain status in the group.
Plural marriage is practiced by some members of the DCCS, and according to the group's website, members make their own choice in who they marry. For more than a decade, the group has publicly spoken out against child-bride marriages and the DCCS has a policy encouraging its members to marry within the legal age of consent.
He is estimated to have approximately 300 children with his wives.
