  • From? via Musical Museum, Dansboro, NY; via Johnston residence, Lowville, NY; restored Bozeman-Gibson 1981, 1-2. (OHS PC Database. October 30, 2004)
  • Updated through online information from Scot Huntington.
    A detailed conservation report for this instrument is reprinted in full, in the monograph "Organbuilding Along the Erie and Chenango Canals", by Stephen Pinel (OHS Press, 2010).
    Sold through the Organ Clearing House and restored according to OHS Guidelines by Bozeman-Gibson, the organ was identified as an Alvinza Andrews by Scot Huntington. The original untouched cone tuning was retained by restoration, which suggested strong evidence of a very mild unequal temperament. Unfortunately, the pipes were shortened by a local builder post-installation, and slide tuners were installed. This is believed to be the only alteration to the original fabric. The disposition of the instrument following the death of Mr. Winkelstein, is unknown (2016). (Database Manager. October 26, 2016)
