In lieu of the indebtedness of this church to the Rev. C. W. Grafton for money
advanced by him in building the Church Parsonage amounting to $440:
Ordered by this Board that the President be and is hereby authorized to make
a bonafide title to the said Grafton of all the lands known as the Parsonage
lands, with all the appertinances thereto belonging (except so much of said
land as lies East of the road leading from the SW corner of the Graveyard at
