    Why was he moved?

    According to the matzeiva (tombstone) the cemetery was suffering from neglect and was in danger of being uprooted. Apparently, he had a large ohel in Chensechov as well.

    Someone in Czenstochov found the Ohel of the Rebbe, and we thought that the Rebbe is still buried there. The Ohel is broken down, the enterence with the front wall is still standing there. But I see now that the Rebbe is not there anymore. The Siftzei Tzaddik is bureid there though! You are welcome to come to Cznstochov any time! Yaakov.

    The Rebbetzin had a elder brother named Rabbi Yakov Yitzchok, who was Rebbe in Tchenstochov after their father. He had a son named Chaim Sholom Yechiel, from his first wife, who cames to E. Israel before the WWII with his mother, and lived in Flatbush (picture of his Matzeivo, see Rabbi Yakov Aharon Shapiro from Far Rockaway is a son of Chaim Sholom Yechiel.
