Paul R. Marchesano on December 15, 2020:

The organ was moved at some point, in whole or part, to Mt. Alverno Boys Home in Ohio. Subsequently the organ was removed and the Swell, Choir and Pedal Division, plus a supply house Great Division, were installed as a new organ by Schaedle Organ Co. in St. Dominic R.C. Church in Cincinnati, Ohio (date unknown). - Information provided by Don Daley.
