Civil War Nurse Cornelia Hancock was born February 8, 1840, at Hancock’s Bridge, four miles south of Salem, in southern New Jersey. She was one of five children born into this Quaker family. Her only brother and her cousins went to war against the south and Cornelia explored every possible opportunity of following them. It was as an assistant to her sister’s husband, Dr. Henry T. Child, of Philadelphia, that she finally achieved her goal. At the age of 24, Cornelia reached the battlefield at Gettysburg. She served continually until Richmond was taken.
