    Active in 1951; built for Northfield, Vermont.

    Watersmith Organ Co. of Lebanon, New Hampshire, will retrofit a ca.1907 M.P. Moller op. 739 tracker into the case that remains from an 1868 William Stevens organ at the United Church in Northfield, Vermont. The Stevens mechanism was removed ca. 1951 and replaced by old parts assembled into an electric unit organ by S. W. Holcombe, who included what appears to be one rank from the Stevens.
