In fact, C.L. Darden is on the left on the front row, and Dr. William Mitchner is at right.

What the occasion for the photo? What does the group represent? Mitchner and Darden were members of Saint John A.M.E. Zion; Freeman, of Calvary Presbyterian; and the fourth man, identified below, was Episcopalian.

  • Dr. William A. Mitchner
  • Camillus L. Darden
  • Mr. Nelson — Note that Patrick M. Valentine’s The Episcopalians of Wilson County: A History of St. Timothy’s and St. Mark’s Churches in Wilson, North Carolina 1856-1995 does not list a Rev. Nelson among the priests that have served at Saint Mark’s. It is, in fact, Rev. Robert N. Perry.
  • Oliver Nestus Freeman
