Identified through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- This is one of several organs built by William Goodrich, while he was a partner under the aegis of Mackay & Co. during a period from 1815 to 1820. Others connected with this concern were Appleton, Hayts, and Babcock. Owen, 1979, writes this instrument utilized "pipes from an 1803 John Geib organ that had been severely damaged in a fire."
