Database Manager on December 04, 2013:

Updated through information from Lisa Hester: -- Relocated. Now in First Presbyterian Church, Benton, Arkansas. We received this information about the organ:
"The instrument was built in New York City for a church in Chatham, near Albany. In the 1930-s it was moved to another church in the nearby town of Stuyvesant. One of the Mayer daughters took piano lessons from Mrs. Ogden, the long-term organist at the Stuyvesant Church who was very devoted to the instrument. After the Methodist Conference ordered the church closed in 1979, the Mayers (Jane Jessup Mayer) purchased the building, upon reselling the church more than twenty years later, Mrs. Mayer retained ownership of the organ."
