Hi. I have no problem transferring to someone directly related. As long as she is connected with her husband whose memorial you added in another state, I will keep the memorial - as you said you would understand. Thank you.

Thank you, Jack. My daughter-in-law and her mother (Jacob Piller's granddaughter), are extremely grateful for your effort and hard work in finding Jacob's grave.

You are a tremendous, and very tenacious, researcher. Thank you for finding Jacob Piller's grave for future generations.

RE: jakob Piller
Hi Jack,

I am so sorry you are having trouble finding Jacob. He died at the hospital and was buried in the cemetery there, wherever that is! I was told it was turned into a city cemetery. Traverse City which I guess is now Oakwood. With the renovations at the hospital, did they do anything with the cemetery?

His name spelled a few different ways: Jakob, Jacob, Jacobus, but I have never seen Piller spelled any other way. Although, it could be Pillar. On his death certificate is has Jacob Piller.

That's about all I know. I suppose he could be without a marker, but then they said they had no record at all!

Thanks for trying to help,

RE: Jacob Piller
Yes, Jack this is the Jakob Piller in my original request. He is my daughter-in-law's great grandfather and I am doing a family tree for her, her mother, and my grandchildren. While we have no family photos of Jakob, I was hoping there might be a photo of his grave site. Thank you for all of your research and efforts.
