Thanks to Trustee Paul Deaton, we have received a copy of the original deed.  A deed dated March 14, 1860 from Frederick Wm. Vonhold and his wife, Anna Marie Elizabeth, transferred the land for Fackler's Grove Cemetery to the Big Grove Township Trustees for a sum of $12.50.  The deed was recorded on June 5, 1865. (We believe the surname is "Vornholt" since there are Vornholt family members buried in the cemetery.)

We have been very pleased with the positive response we have received from the surrounding community and are anxious for spring to come so we can begin the Fackler's Grove Cemetery restoration project. - B. Horak, ECHS
