Paul R. Marchesano on December 23, 2022:

Known from newspaper article stating that the organ was placed: "The large, beautiful and expensive pipe organ for the Presbyterian church, mention of its shipment being made in last week's Echo, has been placed in the church and is ready for operation. It was put in position last week by the man sent here by the company from Erie City, assisted by a number of local people. A water motor was placed and the city water connection made the latter part of last week and the tuner completed his work on Saturday night.

The organ is a costly and beautiful one entirely in harmony with the magnificence of the church architecture and decoration and makes a completeness that is hard to excel. One-half of the cost of the organ was paid by Mr. Carnegie and the other half by the members of the congregation. We congratulate the members in securing so valuable and beautiful a pipe organ. The efforts of those whose interest in the matter secured the organ are evidently highly appreciated." -- The Ligonier Echo, 31 May 1905

At this time in Erie, A.B. Felgemaker would have been the firm. Tellers-Sommerhoff was formed in 1906: Henry and Ignatius Tellers and William A. Sommerhoff had worked together at A.B. Felgemaker of Erie, Pennsylvania, from 1892 to 1906 when they left to form their own firm. [--ed.]
