Database Manager on May 17, 2013:

This entry describes alterations to an existing organ. Identified by John Santoianni, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The instrument was given to me in 1992 by Jim Lauck of Otsego, MI, who had purchased it years before at a flea market. Most of the original metal pipework was missing, save 20 pipes or so, as was the majority of the natural key coverings. Most of the wooden pipes (pedal Gedekt 8, bass of the manual Gedekt 8, Principal 4, Flöte 4) were extant. Only two of the six stop faces were with the organ.
The original location of the organ is unknown. Case and console details are very much like the organ at St. Francis Xavier Church in Falmouth, KY.
