Notes

  • Identified from factory documents and publications courtesy of Stephen Schnurr. (Database Manager. November 25, 2008)
  • Updated through online information from James R. Stettner.
    The history of the Methodist Church in Leaksville, North Carolina called 'ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY YEARS OF PROGRESS AND SERVICE' written by James Oscar Thomas (1957) is available online. In the opening chronology (pg. 3) of important dates entitled 'Historical Highlights', we find, "1955 - New building completed. First service held in new sanctuary on Sunday, November 20, 1955. . 1956 - The Reverend A. M. Faulkner was assigned as pastor in October, 1956. Campaign intensified to raise balance of fund for new organ, ."

    On page 42 we read, "W. T. Amos was chairman of the special organ committee. The new instrument, when installed, will be known as the Edgar Parke Billups Memorial Organ. On March 11, 1957, an order was placed for a Moller organ. The total contract price of the organ was $24,350.00, plus about $1,000.00 for some necessary changes to the location. The instrument is being built at the Moller plant in Hagerstown, Maryland, and will be installed in the church some time during 1958." (Database Manager. June 12, 2016)
  • Leaksville was consolidated into Eden in 1967; it looks from a recent Facebook photo that the organ now has the console of a digital instrument. (Jeff Scofield. December 25, 2018)
