Tombstone Tuesday – John and Lydia (Lehman) Nicholls

Today’s tombstone is that of my 3rd Great Grandfather, John B. Nicholls and his 2nd wife, Lydia (Lehman) Nicholls.  I am featuring both John and Lydia because they share a tombstone.  When I found this marker in the old Evergreen Cemetery in Newville, Indiana, I found both John and Lydia on adjoining sides of the same stone.  On a third side of the stone was an inscription for one of their sons, Harvey.  Lydia, John’s second wife, is not actually in my blood lines.  My 2nd Great Grandfather, Simon, was the child of John and his first wife, Margaret.  (This relationship is unproven as of yet.  The only information that I have is from an undocumented compile genealogy, so needless to say, I have this on my research plans.)
