Cornish Pump Organ

The following is just about all the information that’s survived the passing of time on the Cornish Pump Organ Co.

The Cornish & Co. factory was located on Hornbaker St., corner of Washington Ave., Washington, NJ 1879 to about 1921.

The company was founded by Joseph B. Cornish, who sold organs in the 1870s. In 1879 he bought out the organ company Dawes & Wyckoff.

He was later joined in business by his son Johnston Cornish, and they sold directly to customers, said to be the only one in Washington, NJ who made any money.

The factory capacity in 1900 was 8,000 organs per year. Organ actions, keys, etc. were bought from other companies.

Alvin F. Florey was general manager. The company discontinued organ production about 1917.

Serial numbers: 1897 - 86492, 1897 - 96175, 1897 - 97852, 1899 - 104374, 1900 - 108241, 1906 - 139279, 1906 - 146035, 1907 - 150718, 1913 - 176886, 1914 - 177891.
