Church of England is the same as the Episcopal Church. When Methodism was first introduced, it was the Methodist-Episcopal Church. So it seems that the 'evolution of worship' in our Hoffpauir family was reasonable.
My grandfather, Daniel Griffin, was a Methodist minister. He was married to Mineola Hoffpauir. He officiated at the wedding ceremony of Minnie's sister, Susan Ruth when she married the Reverend Albert D. George, also a Methodist minister. It seems that the Reverend George had performed the same courtesy for Daniel and Mineola.
