All memorials except one win dow and an irreplacable organ were saved. The church was- un der a remodeling process and its interior had been dismantled. Rev. Harold Gilmer said the fire caused a "total loss." He; could not estimate the damage in dollars and cents. St. Paul's is the oldest estab lished congregation in Nqrthl Carolina, having been organized! in 1701, which also makes it the; oldest corporation in the state,| according to Gilmer. Construction of the church be gan in 1736 but it was not until 1760 that services were regular ly held. He said the fire broke out at noon on the roof. The cause of the blaze was unexplained, and it was the workers' lunch hour. He said the destroyed organ was one of four in this country still playing that was made by Henry Erben, a famous organ builder of the 1820's. ihont NORTp WILKESI Street NOTICE and by virtue of the le contained in jt executed ■y. 1946. wife, Si lien, 117, page | e Registfr of )ounty, jNorth 'ault j having tent eipurid r the i note _ led of J* offer to the _ „ front , of the •bortfj North _ig described wit: on a &>ne at the _ _ e TrapaJEH-Doughton road, *uns worth 8 deflrees Ei 8 poles* Ndfkh SO 1-2 deft Bast poles to a [large maple; Noi deg.
