Yes, you are right about the land. This is taken from the 1983 Diamond Jubilee book of St. Mary Czestochowa:
" ...Unfortunately, dissention broke out on a minor issue, that of the location of the church. Mr. Paul Zapisek offered two acres.... followed by the offer of 6 acres by Ignatius Wisniewski and two acres by Anthony Misiewicz..... As a compromise, John Janik offered five acres which seemed most suitable at the time, but this was also rejected..... Mr. John Janik made another offer; this time he was willing to give 10 acres. It was received with joy and unanimously accepted.... The group thanked Mr. John Janik, and Mr. John Kot immediately offered four acres of land for the cemetery which was also accepted...."
The original building was completed in 1907 and the new church in 1950 (a number of relatives and family friends helped in the completion of that church.
Hope this helps.
