Old School: Rev. Mr. Foxwell

"And in the dream I knew that he was goin' on ahead. And he was fixin' to make a fire somewhere out there in all that dark and all that cold, and I knew that whenever I got there, he would be there..."

- No Country For Old Men

Mr. Foxwell began his rectorship at Gethsemane in January, 1914. Under his leadership, the church purchased and installed a new organ. Redecoration of the church continued, and memorials grew more numerous. The memorials included marble steps and a brass rail for the pulpit; general improvements included new light fixtures.

Unfortunately, Mr. Foxwell took seriously ill in 1916, and was forced into early retirement- as situation which likely encouraged the church to subscribe to the Rector's Pension system.

And now, a question for my readers: what was Mr. Foxwell's first name?
