Lizzie Goldy applied for her father Emanuel Cox's Civil War service pension: "That the said soldier was lawfully married to Annie Shearer, claimant's mother, at Phila by Rev A Manship in the year 1865 and that neither party had been previously married. That the said Annie, nee Shearer, claimants mother died at Phila on the 9th day of October A D 1872 leaving Lizzie May, their only child, the claimant then under 16 years of age, who entered an Orphans home and remained there until she reached the age of 16 years. That the said Lizzie May Cox, now Goldy legitimate daughter of Emanuel Cox and Annie S his wife aforesaid was born on Cass St. Phila PA on the 3rd day of June A D 1869. That her mother had never applied for a pension in her life time to her knowledge and that she has made no further application. That said soldier was not otherwise employed in the U S service than herein mentioned declaration hereby appoint G J Brensinger of Philadelphia PA her true and lawful attorney to prosecute this claim. That her Post Office address is 405 Bergen St, Gloucester City, New Jersey. Filed 28 September 1898 Signed: Lizzie May Goldy."
Lizzie never did get the survivor pension because her birth had never been publically recorded.
After her parent's death, she had been sent to the orphan's home in Philadelphia and afterwards the Orphans home at "Chester Springs" where she met with an accident to her nose which maimed her for life. She remained at the home until she reached the age of 16 years. She always wore glasses and a fake nose attached. She married James Cain Goldy and had 8 children. Most are buried at Haddonfield Baptist as she is.
