Database Manager on November 12, 2014:

Updated through online information from John McCraney. -- The following is from two printed histories of the church. (Date vague) around 1900 this organ was moved to the Cornish Chapel, a small gothic-revival building/parish house near the main church. It was later given or sold to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Graniteville, South Carolina, a village only a few miles from Aiken. About 1948, the organ was replaced by a Möller 3-rank Artiste. There is no information about what happened to the Hook thereafter.
