Tombstone Tuesday: Born in Allegheny

I photographed this stone recently in Mount Royal Cemetery in Glenshaw (Pittsburgh), PA.  It was the inscription not the stone itself that caught my attention.  I do not think I have ever come across one that states the US county of birth.  It made me wonder why being born in Allegheny County, PA was special to this person and or their family.  I did notice some larger stones right behind this had "Born in Germany".  Maybe she was the first generation born in the US after the family immigrated?
