Bishop Charles Gresham Marmion Jr
Bishop William H Marmion
more to come shortly

*Redding, Jay Saunders, 1906-1988. On Being Negro in America. Indianapolis: Charter Books, (1962). wrote "To Bishop Marmion in profound respect for his Christian integrity and social courage. Saunders Redding". Charles Gresham Marmion,, fifth Bishop of the Episcopal diocese of Kentucky (1954-1974), participated in civil rights marches and presided over the integration of Kentucky's Episcopal churches. In 1935, long before becoming Bishop, Marmion tried unsuccessfully to prevent the lynching of two young men who had been accused of the rape and murder of a white girl in Columbia, Texas. Marmion's brother William H, was an Episcopal Bishop in Southwestern Virginia and also strongly opposed racial segregation. Either brother would appear to have merited the inscription.
