A pleasing legend has it that the Aberdeen Journal of April 15, 1912, splashed the story of the sinking of the Titanic with this headline: "North East Man Lost at Sea." Herewith the Church Times on the secession of seven Virginia parishes from the Episcopal Church:
Virginia remnant vows to stay faithful to ECUSATHIRTY MEMBERS of one of the Virginia congregations that voted to secede from the Episcopal Church in the United States to join the Church of Nigeria have declared their opposition to the majority decision. They have pledged to continue as the Episcopalian presence in their community.
