Rev. Berlin Smith & Rev. Jim Mullins 1953, Dry Fork River, #2 Yukon

Rev Berlin Smith lived in #2 Yukon and pastored a church there, and I was his assistant pastor for a long time. He worked a lot of overtime as a mechanic at the mines, and it seems he was unable to be at a lot of services. We traveled around the county preaching together.

Rev. Jim Mullins & Rev. Jack Griffith 1953, Dry Fork River

Rev Jack Griffith lived in # 2 Yukon where I would stay and visit my Mom and her second husband Roy Damron (a contractor). Rev Griffith introduced me to "brush arbor" preaching. I am pleased to have preached in a "brush arbor" up Three Forks Mountain. He would sometimes come by and ask me to go to church services with him and at some I preached. He had me help him baptize many. His grandson Lacy Griffith is still an active preacher in the county.
