This entry represents the moving and reinstallation of an existing organ in a new location and for a new owner. It was originally built for Christ Episcopal Church in Marlboro, New York. Identified by Donald R. Thompson, "With permission of the [Christ] church leaders, I removed the organ and reassembled it in my home at 77 Suncliff Road, Glenford, NY. in about July of 1962. It has been in operation ever since. My wife Marion was an organist since she was in high school in the 1940s and she still plays this organ in our home. I am an engineer by profession and have kept the organ in operation for the last 48 years. I just came upon this organ database and thought it would be good to update your records. We are also planning to sell the house this spring and plan to leave the organ installed in the house."
