The pastor of Emilie’s church, Jonathan C. Gibbs, made several trips to the South in 1865, finally departing the First African Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia in late 1865 or early 1866. Gibbs formal separation from the church occurred on good terms via a resolution passed by congregation leaders on March 2, 1866 and published in The Christian Recorder on March 17, 1866.
