I have a good many books and resources for Westmoreland County. I've found various items regarding Jacob's sons, and there is mention of Jacob and Nancy, but I find no burial information for either of them. The family is found in both Grapeville and Penn Station - both within a mile or two of Lincoln Heights. (I'm from that area so I know it well). Jacob was a confectioner, according to these sources. I also show several other Landis family members, Caleb (marriage announcement) David (marriage announcement- a second marriage?)Esther (marriage)Clara (marriage) and death notices for Polly, Anna and Jacob (not yours). I also have two biographies decendants of Jacob, both written early 1900's and containing some information on other family members and ancestors. I don't know what you have and what you don't and I don't want to spend a lot of time duplicating stuff you already know. I don't have a burial location, but if you can give me some more clues, I might be able to give you some hints. I know most of the old churches and cemeteries around here. If you can tell me anything you know about the family religion, I might be able to direct you to specific cemeteries that have records. Were they German? Scotch-Irish? I think I read that they were Lutheran, which means that they were probably German. I can narrow things down that way. I had cemetery lists handy for the Old German Cemetery in Greensburg and Old St. Clair (Presbyterian) also in Greensburg. There were no Landis family in either of these.
