NOTES SUPPLIED BY OTHERS:
NOTE BY ROY REDMAN: "The Ursuline convent organ is by Pilcher Bros. of New Orleans. It is one of
three known to exist by the firm. One other, a one manual, in is Christ the
King Lutheran in Natchitoches La., and the other is in St. Martinsville.
Some think the case in St. Stephen Catholic and the former case in St. Louis
Cathedral were also built in New Orleans, but this, as far as I know is
unproven. The name P. Bro. also appears on ;the metal pipes of the Great in
Grace Church St. Francisville. Those pipes evidently replaced ones lost in
the civil war. William Pilcher also added the second manual and rededicated
the 1837 Henry Erben at St. Paul's Woodville Mississippi."
