St. Stephens, c. 1910
Frances Keller Barr wrote a short history about St. Stephens, here (pdf).

 

Latonia  

“This modest wooden church spawned two different congregations. It was built in 1867 by the Episcopal mission, which developed into St. Stephens. Henry Feltman, then conducting Sunday school for Milldale residents, purchased the little church to establish Trinity Methodist Church in 1890. The congregation grew, and in 1910 they sold the building to Albert Dehlinger, who moved it for his new Delbee Theater.” Image and text from Lisa Curtiss Gilham's Latonia: Images of America.

You can argue whether St. Anthony's is/was in Latonia, Forest Hills, Decoursey,
or Taylor Mill, but wherever it is, the Rev. Paul Ryan's history of it is here.
