Finally got access to the old church records. This was actually bought NEW from Kilgen in 1954 for $6,000. It was installed by Kilgen!
according to records I was able to go through today at the parish, Fabry organ builders of Antioch, IL maintains our organ and it is a 6 rank not a 4 rank as I previously mentioned. waiting to get into archives as to who installed it.
Identified via email from parishioner Robert Bowie on July 29, 2020 - who wrote, "Our church has a Kilgen we bought second hand in 1952 for $1250.00."
