Orson Spencer on God and Mary

I found the following summary account in Orson Spencer's Patriarchal Order, or Plurality of Wives! (Liverpool, UK: W. Richards, 1853), 15:
Had the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ a wife? - Yes.

Who was she? - Mary; and blessed above all women, and highly favoured of the Lord.

Had he any children by her in the flesh? - One Only-Begotten Son, Jesus Christ.

Had the Father of Jesus Christ any other children? - Yes; an innumerable multitude.

Who are they? - We, the whole human family, and also the fallen angels, are his offspring. He is the Father of our spirits, and Jesus is our oldest Brother among the Spirits.
