The Nix/Judy Cemetery is the burial site of some of the very earliest settlers in this part of Illinois. Names of the pioneers buried here are found in the earliest journals of the "Goshen Settlement". Samuel Judy moved to this area in 1801 with a 100 acre militia grant and funds from his property sale south of Cahokia. He planted an orchard on Claim No. 338 in 1802. Judy served in the first legislature of Illinois that convened at Kaskaskia. The Judy family had been living in "Goshen" for 3 years when Lewis and Clark started their expedition.
