Database Manager on July 29, 2014:

Updated through online information from Scot Huntington. -- This is presumably the Bible Baptist church, an 1843 wood-frame building which burned to the ground on Dec. 15, 2010. There was no organ or remnant of one in this building in anyone's living memory, and the theory that the Hornell St. Anne instrument came from this church has no currently provable foundation. The date of acquisition of the Garret House organ by St. Anne's is unknown, but it has been there at least 100 years.
