Rev. Albert Linnell Schrock

The Rev. Albert L. Schrock was born in Galion, Ohio, on 17 January 1894, the son of Edwin and Minnie (Linnel) Schrock. He began his career as an accountant in Plymouth, Indiana, and the parish of St. Thomas promoted him to Bishop White as a candidate for Holy Orders in 1922. He attended seminary at Nashotah House, graduating in 1924 and assisting at St. Mark's Church in Milwaukee. He returned to Indiana as a deacon later that year as rector of St. James, Goshen. He was also given oversight of the missions of Trinity in Kendallville and St. Elizabeth in Auburn. He remained at Goshen through 1935, then moved to Holy Trinity Church in Fallon, Nevada, from 1936 to 1937. By 1940 he had moved to Spencer, Iowa. His later career is difficult to document, but he appears to have moved frequently. He was in Greenvile and Rensselaerville, New York, in 1948 and Wortendyke, New Jersey, in 1949. He then moved to Escanaba, Michigan, in 1950, and later in the decade was at St. Mary's Church in Culver City, California. He became rector of St. George's Church in Hawthorne, California, in 1960. He died in Alhambra, California, on 29 May 1971 and was buried at Nashotah House.
