History of D.W. Karn & Co. if interested:

Karn Piano Co, Ltd. Piano and organ manufacturing firm founded in Woodstock, Ont, by Dennis W. Karn (b. North Oxford County, Canada West, 6 Feb 1843, d. Toronto 19 Sep 1916). A farmer and amateur musician, Karn taught at singing schools and built violins as a hobby. About 1867 he joined John M. Miller, who was building one cabinet organ a week. In 1870 Karn bought out Miller. He retained the name Miller & Karn for some years, however, before he adopted the name D.W. Karn Co; in the 1870s the name Woodstock Organ Factory also was used.

Besides operating his company, Karn was active in municipal affairs. He was elected mayor of Woodstock in 1889 and stood twice for election to Parliament. He retired in 1909.
