Paul R. Marchesano on August 12, 2022:

In 1871 Albert C. Gemünder received a contract to renovate and move an existing organ already in the First Congregational Church, likely a ca. 1820 Thomas Appleton instrument acquired second-hand in 1863. The organ was removed in 1872 by Gemünder, who proposed “to make such changes as will make it one of the best as it is one of the largest in the city.” -- Pipe Organs of Columbus OHS 2022

It is not clear from where the Appleton was obtained, but presumed to be New York City.
