1. History has a way of repeating itself.
While researching my father’s family history, of which very little is known, to his amazement I discovered he is the 4th great grandson of Rev. Phillip Mulkey.
Although my father grew up in the moonshine drenched hills of North Ga., with very little, if any, Christian influence of note. He himself became an ordained minister of the United Pentecostal faith. Although not Baptist, Rev. Jimmy Ray
Over two hundred years of growth, progress and loss could not change who he is. With voiceless validity History has once again overcome and, in my family, completed yet another circle.
With all that I am,
