Clinton, Looks like you and I are related.I have a Howard Hiler in my database.I have no other data on Howard other than he was born in Grant, MI. Howards father was Louis Elsworth Hiler, but I show he was born in 1903 instead of 1901 as you state.I got my infro from Dana Hiler whose note to the entry says "Info received for the Louis Hiler family came from an article in a book.The article is entitled 'The Louis Hiler family'.This was found and sent to me by Susan Hallock."I also show Louis died in 1962.His wife's first name was Ester--I have no further info on Ester, Louis, or Howard.I do show names of 10 children of Louis and Ester. Our branches merge at Louis' father, Leamon Elsworth Hiler, who is my grgandfather.
I's like to get more data on your branch to fill out my database and complete the link to you.I have not data beyond Howard's name and birth place.
I have yet to be able to make a link back to Europe.I have found coats of arms from both England and Germany.
