Looking for information for Nancy Goldman born in Edgefield County, South Carolina 1820 married Peter Durst III . They moved to Albany, Georgia where Peter died in 1860. Nancy and her unmarried children moved to Ellaville, Florida where she ran a boarding house until her death in 1877. Her son Robert married Martha Ann Catherine Hiers of Colquitt Couty, Georgia after being released from Point Lookout prison. He was wounded at Sharpsburg (Antietam) and left behind enemy lines at the Battle Monocacy, Maryland. He was sent to Fort McHenry in August 1874 and transeferred to Point Lookout in Oct 1864. He was paroled in Thomasville, Georgia in May 1865. Relatives in South Carolina presumed him dead. He lost the sight in one eye due to injuries suffered during the war. He received the Truitt Cross of Honor and is buried in Hahira, Georgia.

Nancy Goldman had another relative sister? sister in law? In Ellaville. Her name was Frances Goldman and she witnessed the marriage of Nancy's daughter, Francis Elizabeth Durst, to James Harmon. James Harmon was a Union veteran and the couple was not accepted in the south. They moved to South Dakota.

Martha Ann (Mattie ) Goldman born in Edgefield in 1828, may have been a sister to Nancy. She married James Robert Hastings, and Nancy named her first Son James Robert Durst.
