Database Manager on January 01, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This organ is believed to have originally been built for an unidentified mortuary in Tacoma, Washington, where it is said to have served for ca. 50 years. Around 1984, it was purchased by a private party in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada where it was installed in a trailer home. When the owners planned on moving to a house boat, they offered the instrument for sale for $3,000.00 (U.S.). It was purchased by the Coerbers in 1989 for $2,750.00 and installed by them in their rural Everett home.
