Database Manager on November 13, 2007:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- A WWI era photo of the organ in the "History" section of the church's website shows the organ in the rear gallery. It had a 5-sectional stenciled pipe fence facade with an indiscernible number of pipes arranged ??-5-??-5-??. The Hook and Hastings replaced an 1809 organ by an unknown builder. The congregation later became Tabor, U.C.C.
