Identified through online information from Greg Lacey.
This organ was purchased by Mrs. Nell Clark after the Möller organ was installed at St. Paul's Kingsport in 1970. It was installed in two residences in the Abingdon, Virginia, area during her ownership and at some point she added a rank of reed pipes (Krummhorn?). I believe this work was done by Barger & Nix Organs. Before her death, Nell gave the organ to Christ the King Catholic Church in Abingdon, Virginia. It was relocated and installed by R. A. Colby Organ of Johnson City, Tennessee.
