Database Manager on February 16, 2015:

Updated through online information from Wesley Brown. -- It has been reported to me by an existing church member that the organ is in regular use each Sunday. The original site of the organ was Christ(or sometimes Christ's)Presbyterian Church in Catskill, NY. Susquehanna United Methodist Church was at that time the Durham Presbyterian Church. Neither Presbyterian Church still exists. The one in Catskill is a private home.
