NOTES SUPPLIED BY OTHERS: NOTE BY ROY REDMAN: "Felicity was literally "dug out of the dirt" by us in 1974. It had been horribly damaged by Hurricane Betsy, and the church was using a Hammond. We were assisted by Methodist youth work campers. All work was done with the organ in place. It has never been completely restored."
