Jane Brady was born in Pennsylvania, marrying Alexander Locke there around 1830. They came to Wisconsin, becoming some of the first settlers in what was to become Reedsburg, in Sauk County. One of their sons, Alexander, apparently stayed in Pennsylvania, two children died and were buried in Reedsburg, and two more were born there. The family left Reedsburg and homesteaded in Barron County when it was still mostly a wilderness.
As far as we in the family know, she was Jane Brady, not Mary Jane. At least that was the name she used. The birth date of 1808 in the written portion is most likely accurate; the 1806 is unknown to us and probably an error when the new marker was made. I am a gr granddaughter, but my mother was born after the deaths of Jane and Alexander so never knew them.
