Jim Stettner on July 28, 2021:

The original home of this organ is not presently known. The Felgemaker was originally 9-ranks. A Great 2' Fifteenth was added on a jump slide by Frans W.M. Bosman for this installation. The case front was altered and extended to fit the space requirements at Calvary Lutheran. The facade pipes were also stenciled for the installation. The congregation later disbanded and the organ was moved by Bosman to St. John's Episcopal in Lodi, California.
