    Eerie! This popped into my Inbox on the very morning I was going to look into the story of the Church of the Crucifixion, covered in section II of this article. The reason is i’m researching an unexpected member of its vestry who is not mentioned here, the white businessman Robert E. Atmore (Atmore Mincemeat on Tasker St.), a congregant at St. Stephen’s. According to his obit in the Inquirer, he quietly contributed money to fund the move to the new church. He apparently did a great deal—quietly, His family commissioned St. Stephen’s wonderful 1911 Tiffany Christ and Nicodemus window as a memorial to him, i’ll post something in this soon, Thanks for this!

    Actually, having read the piece and others, the white Atmore was apparently the norm for this parish.
