The Biological and Step Children of Tony Alamo

Tony Alamo has sired many children over the years but denies being a polygamist. There are three children, in particular, of interest to the public. Sion, Tabor and Antoinette. These three children were all conceived during Alamo’s legal marriage to Sharon Kroopf. Sharon is the biological mother of one of the children, Sion, but the others have been born to different mothers who reside with (or near) Alamo under the guise of being “secretaries”. Lydia Willis is the mother to Tabor and Elizabeth Mercado (aka “Lizzy” Gutierrez) is mother to Antoinette. Former wives have come forward with the truth about Tony Alamo and his many wives and the children born of his polygamist lifestyle.
