    I was wondering if anybody on here knows what happened to the 2 Old Zion Association of united Baptists churches that were once located in Washington state. The churches were New Aukum which disappeared from the minutes in the 1930s, and Rainy Valley which stayed on the roster till about 1950. I speculate that New Aukum closed then because it's last membership was 11. Rainy Valley still had 33 members when it was last mentioned.

    From what I know of the area, the congregations probably morphed into IFB churches of the Northern Baptist-FBF-style persuasion. AFAIK, United Baptists have their roots in the South. That area of Washington State didn't see that much migration coming out of the Dust Bowl like Southern and Central California did.
