Could my John COOK, abt. 40 years old, have served from New York in the War of 1812-14?
If yes, would the officers: Capt. John J. COOK and Ensign John O. COOK listed below, have been the oldest soldiers?

I transcribed these:
1) Capt. John J. COOK served under Major Frederic GETMAN Infantry Militia from 7 Sept. 1814 to 14 Nov. 1814, paid $90.66 by S. Edmonds, P.M. Vou. 158.K.

Remarks: From Montgomery County.
Disc. Nov. 8th at Sackets Harbor, [Jefferson Co., NY]. Residence Montgmery Co. distance 130 miles allowed 6 days to return.

Roll 359.

2) Private John J. COOK, Jr.'s
served under Capt. John J. COOK, in Major Frederic GETMAN Infantry Militia from 7 Sept. 1814 to 14 Nov. 1814, paid $18.13 by S. Edmonds, P.M. Vou. 158.K.

Remarks: From Montgomery County. William BLACK's sub.
Disc. Nov. 8th at Sackets Harbor, [Jefferson Co.], NY. I just . Residence Montgmery Co. distance 130 miles allowed 6 days to return.

Roll 359.

3) Priv. John COOK in service at Stony Point, Rockland Co., NY.

4) Priv. John C. COOK in service at Cape Vincent, Jefferson Co., NY.

5) John O. COOKą discharged Oct. 22. 7 days travel home.

I have photocopies of NY War of 1812 data for:

[2] Priv. John COOK,
[2] Priv. Jno. COOK,
[1] Priv. John COOK,
[2] Priv. John COOK,
[1] Priv. John COOK,
[1] Priv. John C. COOK,
[2] Priv. John I. COOK [COOKE],
[1] Capt. John J. COOK,
[1] Priv. John J. COOK, Jr.,
[2] Ensign John O. COOK [O COOK or O'COOK], and
[1] Fifer John R. COOK.

The number in brackets [] indicates the number of cards I have for that soldier
with more military data.

Thanks in advance,
Jan Jordan <jnrose@webtv.net>
