Additional Notes

  • From the OHS Database Builders Listing editor, October 9, 2016. -

    Carl Barckhoff Jr. was born sometime after 1906 in Pomeroy, Ohio. He was one of the sons of Carl Barckhoff Sr. and his third wife, Lena Graber Barckhoff, and a grandson of Felix Barckhoff [I]. Carl Jr. could not have been more than 11 when his father retired, and no more than 13 when his father died; so it is unlikely that he worked in his father's firm.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
