Database Manager on November 28, 2007:

Identified from factory documents and publications courtesy of Stephen Schnurr. Replaced Möller opus 3697. Möller, wary of the church's ability to pay, filed for title protection with the circuit court of Adams County, Mississippi, giving Möller title to the organ until it was paid in full. In September of 1941, the pastor of Zion Church wrote to Möller, apologizing for the length of time it was taking to pay off their indebtedness. He specifically mentioned that the church had never been able to recover from the 1929 Depression and that many of the best members had moved away or had died, leaving behind a small and struggling congregation. The organ was finally paid off in October of 1943.
