Comment: From a throw-away remark in the 1977 book on Trinity Cathedral, it's possible that the window was in memory of John Howard Barlow (7 Dec 1806 - 28 Oct 1894) and his mother-in-law, Mary Elmendorf, and thus was possibly donated by the wife / daughter, Mary Matilda Elmendorf Barlow [TC1977, FINDAGRAVE, SPEL1910, DEDUCED]
