Altered and relocated existing organ. Identified by Timothy E. Conyers, using information found in Manuscript, "History of St. Paul's Episcopal Church" by Lulu M. Likens, June 1906.. -- The instrument was originally at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Richmond, Indiana, from 1858 to 1892. A history of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, written June 1906, by Lulu M. Likens, records, "It proved to be one of the best organs ever used in Richmond. It was later sold to St. Mary's Catholic church, [Richmond, Indiana] where it is still used." When the present St. Mary's Church was built in 1909 at 720 North A Street, the organ was supposedly moved to the new building. In December 1988, the organ tuner reported the instrument still exists either in part or whole at St. Mary's. At that time, I had the opportunity to play the instrument, examine the pipework and assisted in the tuning. The organ was in a rear gallery case with some pipes exposed forming a facade. The console was detached facing the case. I recall the console was very old and the case also appeared to be very old.
