Note:

A water-colored elevation drawing signed “T. U. Walter, 1843” has been linked to the Chapel of the Cross. However, there are differences between the drawing and the church as built; it may be that Walter made the elevation from his original (missing) drawings for the church. How much the actual building deviated—perhaps for reasons of economy—from Walter’s original drawings is not known.
