Database Manager on April 18, 2005:

Possibly the 1884 Pilcher built for St. John's Episcopal in Decatur, IL. If so, it was probably replaced there c. 1892 when St. John's received a Roosevelt that was originally built for St. Clements Episcopal, Chicago, IL. St. Clements was disbanded about 1892, and the organ appears on later Roosevelt lists at St. John's. (Information from The Stopt Diapason, Vol. 6, No. 2, "A Pilcher Organ Discovered . . ." by Michael Friesen.)
