Crosby. Phoebe&rsquo;s parents were Methodist evangelists Dr. Walter C. Palmer and Phoebe Worrall Palmer. At the age of 16, she married Joseph F. Knapp (1832-1891), a partner in the lithography concern Major &amp; Knapp, and a director of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. The Knapps lived in Brooklyn and were members of the John Street Methodist Church in New York City, as was Phoebe&rsquo;s close friend Fanny Crosby. After her husband&rsquo;s death, Phoebe was left with a large income, much of which she gave to charity. In 1898, she moved to a suite in the Savoy Hotel in New York City, and composed over 500 hymn tunes.

ORGAN 2/2 -- George Jardine & Son

----------

George Jardine & Son

New York City (1880); moved to Savoy Hotel (1898)
Mechanical action
3 manuals, 24 stops, 24 ranks
An account of this organ was given in The Musical Critic and Trade Review (Vol. 3, No. 2, 1880):
"An exhibition was given on Thursday afternoon of last week, in Jardine & Sons' [sic] factory, on a large and beautiful three-bank organ, built for the magnificent music room of Mr. Joseph F. Knapp, of Bedford Ave., Brooklyn. The organ was thoroughly tested by the following well-known organists, Profs. Morgan, Johnston, Gueli and Loretz, and Mr. Edw. G. Jardine, and proved equal to the trial." In 1898, this organ was moved to Phoebe Knapp's suite at the Savoy Hotel in New York.
