Tiffany/Duncan comment: Tiffany 1910 also mentions the window is "Ornamental" and the two outer panes are indeed ornamental [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, DEDUCED]
Tiffany 1910 calls this just the McKown Memorial Window so likely the McKowns were the donors of the window [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, DEDUCED]
Comment: The inscription was evidently updated to include the McKowns after they died [DEDUCED]
The 1992 Census says that the window was documented to date to 1951, and possibly that was when the window was re-dedicated to include the McKowns [CENS1992, DEDUCED]
