Peter J Weller's headstone was made just as any other headstone. When he passed in 1849, no one could have ever imagined it would have a life and journey of it's own.

Peter J Weller was a pioneer who settled in Lansing, Michigan. He was well-known as a businessman. He owned a restaurant in "Upper town".

At 48, he passed away in 1849 in Lansing and was buried in the Oak Park Cemetery. His headstone was placed with a simple message. (Peter J Weller, Died Dec 26, 1849, 48 years, 8 mo & 22 days).

The Friends of Lansing's Historic Cemeteries set up a dedication ceremony on Sunday, 26, Sep, 2021.
