Paul R. Marchesano on August 10, 2021:

The organ at Trinity Episcopal Church was built for the United Church of Christ (formerly the German Evangelical Church) in O'Fallon, Illinois, which now has a Leonard Berghaus two manual tracker instrument. The O'Fallon church had a one manual Kilgen which was damaged in a fire. Some pipes from that instrument were used in building the 1905 organ. -- 1979 OHS Handbook
