Valley Forge
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 7, 1931
Hampton City

The son of John & Hannah Coxey and the husband of 1) Anna Eliza Bent Coxey, whom he married October 20, 1870, in Lancaster County and later divorced, 2) Hannah M. Trice Coxey, whom he married in 1892, and 3) Elizabeth Eisenhower Coxey, whom he married in 1906. In 1860, he was a mechanic living in Philadelphia. He stood 5' 8" tall and had light hair and blue eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he first served at the rank of private with Co. A, 35th Pa Militia, June 29 - August 11, 1863, during the Gettysburg crisis. He then enrolled in Harrisburg February 5, 1864, with Co. M, 7th Pa Cav (80th Pa), at the rank of private. Suffered a shell wound to the head, date and place unknown. Deserted December 11, 1864, and did not return. Nonetheless, in 1890, the War Department lifted the charge, enabling him to enjoy veteran's benefits.

On September 11, 1916, he had been living with his daughter Elizabeth in Norfolk, Virginia, when he entered the Soldiers' Home in Hampton. Discharged November 2, 1918, but reentered the home in Tennessee March 18, 1919, and discharged December 5, 1920. Readmitted to the Hampton facility January 9, 1831, and remained until his death, which occurred at 3:30 PM.
