Database Manager on August 10, 2015:

Updated through online information from Stephen Hall. -- Replaced in 1859 by another Erben organ which is still there today. The church history does not record why the organ was replaced, but the church was badly damaged by storms in 1852 and 1853 requiring extensive repairs. The organ was most likely damaged at that time.
