Isaac Thomas Hecker and his older brother, George Valentine Hecker, had a great deal to do with the founding of the Missionary Society of St. Paul the Apostle, as recorded in the history of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle prepared by the Landmarks Preservation Commission:
"In the late 1850s, construction of Central Park was just beginning and the blocks surrounding the site of the future church were mostly undeveloped. For a brief time, the Paulist Fathers rented a small frame house at 14 West 60th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues,10 which temporarily functioned as a chapel and residence. Hecker soon began to solicit funds from city residents, as well as from members of the national clergy, to erect a church and convent. Leading donors included Father Joseph Early of Georgetown College in Washington D.C. and George V(alentine) Hecker (1818-1888), Father Hecker’s older brother and founder of Croton Flour Mills, for which the Heckers brand of flour is named."
