Jane Lea Nixon Tombstone, Old St. Luke’s

The tombstone claims that Jane was “the first white child born in Chartiers Valley.” It also remembers Thomas Nixon, presumably her husband, who earned no such distinction. He would have been born in about 1767, and we presume he was an immigrant to the Chartiers Valley.
