From Organ Database Builders editor Stephen Hall, November 9, 2019. —

There is an apparent error here, the article quoted in The Tracker lists B. Riley, and associated with Kilgen, not Ferris and Stuart. The article reads:

On a 1-6 formerly in Fourth Moravian Church, New York: Henry C. Stuart, C.S. Brandrup, B. Riley and Edwin J. Donnoyer & Co. Under each is engraved "Kilgen". The date appears to be about 1855.
On a 1-5 Richard M. Ferris, formerly in Christ Lutheran Church, New York, now owned by William, Franklin and Harry Odell: John E. Ayers, June 23, 1857; G. N. Osler, June 22, 1857; James W. Hoey, 1857; and Arnold Polster, 1857. The names Third scale Principal and Third 3 also occur. Mr. Polster worked later for H.L. Roosevelt.
