|Hyrum Third Ward from "Home in the Hills of Bridgerland"|
Back in those days there were three wards in Hyrum. The only one of the church buildings still standing is Hyrum First Ward. I lived in Hyrum Second Ward. All of the South part of Cache Valley was one stake, including Wellsville, Millville, Paradise, Nibley, Providence, River Heights, Mendon and Young and College Wards.

We started with a meeting in the chapel. It was the only way to include everyone. The font was in the basement. I remember there was a big line. So many children that I couldn't count them all. My dad baptized me. Most children were baptized by their fathers. I remember one girl who was not, I think her name was Paula Christensen. I remember she cried and cried, but they dunked her just the same.
But to be honest, I don't remember much about this day.
