Paul R. Marchesano on August 26, 2021:

"An order has been placed with King & Co. of Rochester, [sic] for a single manual pipe organ for the Baptist Church of this village. It is to be specially built to fit the organ alcove, and will be completed, as is hoped, by the middle of next month. King & Co. are a well-known firm of organ builders, having furnished all the organs to Watkins churches and placed their instruments in many of the principal churches of the land." -- Watkins Express, Jan 26, 1899, p. 3
