Description: 

Because Goodhue Coldfield is a "steward" in the Methodist Church in Jefferson (11), the wedding between his daughter Ellen and Sutpen takes place here. Judith wants her father's funeral to be held as "that same Methodist church in town where he had married her mother" (151), but is prevented when the wagon on which "he rode fast" toward this church turns over (151).
