August 1947: A little Church Business!

Mr. Don D. Lundrigan wrote to my father Keith McDonald on August 26, 1947 about the First English Evangelical Lutheran Church.  Here is a link to a very lovely church in Pine River that may be the one in question: http://www.1stluth.org/

It was a letter and court documents regarding the title of the land for the church. Apparently when the deed was first written up by my great-grandmother Amarilla it was done slightly wrong and they wanted to “quiet the title,” on the land the church is situated.

Unfortunately he does not reference the Book and Volume of the deed in question. He goes on and comment that “The church has occupied this property for well over the period required for them to obtain the property by adverse possession.”  He does assure that there will be no injury to any interests the family may have?

Reading through the documents it looks very complicated and involves other people and a bank.  There were approximately eight pages of various motions.

Mr. Lundrigan went on to be in the state legislature. Here is a link to information and photo of Mr. Lundrigan:
