- There are no sources listed in Fox's Guide to North American Organbuilders It is assumed the information for the patents is taken from the text of the United States patents whose numbers are listed here as that is the usual practice. The reference to Erastus S. McCollum is likely based on the entry for that individual who is known to have had a brother. The source for the ending limit for Fenelon's death has not been determined.
