Database Manager on March 16, 2016:

Updated through online information from Scot Huntington.
In 1842 a Swell to Great coupler was added. This organ was sold to Christ Church Episcopal, Springfield, Massachusetts in 1851. It was then taken in trade by Steere & Turner when they installed their No. 205 in 1885. It is believed this was the same organ Steere & Turner rebuilt and "modernized" for St. Mary's Church R.C., Cooperstown, New York in 1886 as their No. 224. This organ was presumably junked when it was replaced with a 1949 Moller unit organ, installed behind the historic case.
