Whenever a petition setting forth a proposed cemetery district (which includes territory wherein an existing township cemetery is located) and a proposal to disorganize the existing township cemetery, signed by not less than fifty-one percent of the qualified electors of said proposed district, to be determined by an enumeration taken and verified for this purpose by some qualified elector of said proposed district, shall be presented to the board of county commissioners of the county in which lies the greatest portion of the territory comprising said district, in favor of such petition together with a resolution unanimously adopted and signed by the members of the township board of the township having such township cemetery which is to be disorganized stating that said township board agrees and consents to the disorganization of said township cemetery, it shall be the duty of the board of county commissioners at its next regular meeting to examine said petition and resolution and, if it finds that said petition and resolution are regular and in the form herein prescribed and that there is no outstanding indebtedness against said township cemetery district and that said township board is willing to convey all right, title and interest of said township in and to said cemetery to the proposed new cemetery district, it shall enter an order in its proceedings disorganizing said township cemetery district and establishing said proposed cemetery district.

Thereupon, the township board of the township shall convey all right, title and interest in and to said township cemetery to the newly organized cemetery district. Such conveyance shall be made by a deed signed and acknowledged by the township trustee. Immediately upon the selection and qualification of the treasurer of the new cemetery district, the township treasurer shall pay over to such cemetery district treasurer all funds and moneys in his hands together with all moneys and funds in the county treasury which have been collected for cemetery purposes by such township.
