Birth: 1827
Death: Dec. 17, 1891

Wife of James A.Cox, married in 1862; 64 yrs.

Daughter of a Fredericksburg printer, Jesse White of the 'Fredericksburg Weekly Advertiser', she went to war with her husband (who was an employee of her father) and accompanied him wherever he went for four years until the war ended.
She cooked and washed for her husband's company and helped care for the sick and wounded. She was known throughout her husband's company by the sobrequet "Pawnee" (based on a stubborn Union Gunboat of that name).

After her death a military parade was held to honor. She was buried with full military honors.

Her tombstone bears the inscription:
"A sharer of the toils, danger and privations of the 30th Regt. Va. Infy, C.S.A. from 1861-1865."
"Erected by her Friends"
