Any association of persons who are acting as a cemetery association, who have purchased and improved lands for cemetery purposes by subscriptions of lot holders and the sale of lots, and who are acting through a board of trustees chosen by members of the association may, when the lands thus occupied have been brought or held within the corporate limits of a village subsequently to the time of their purchase and improvement, become incorporated for cemetery purposes, as though the lands held by the association were outside such corporate limits.
Any association incorporated under this section as the successor of such an original association may, with the concurrence of the original association, take possession of, hold, and use, for cemetery purposes, all the property belonging to and held by the original association for such purposes.
All rights of lot owners in the cemetery grounds of the original association are valid without reference to the form of conveyance issued to them by the trustees of the original association, and shall be reserved and assured to such lot owners upon an incorporation under this section.
