Wikipedia says:

Cooke was born on October 26, 1816,[1] in Martinsburg when it was then part of Virginia and spent the majority of his life in the northern part of the Shenandoah Valley.[2] He attended Princeton University, where he wrote the poems "Song of the Sioux Lovers", Autumn", and "Historical Ballads, No. 6 Persian: Dhu Nowas", as well as a short story, "The Consumptive" before his graduation in 1834.[3] After graduation, he followed in his father's profession as a lawyer. His two main hobbies, however, were hunting and writing, though he never made a profession out of his writing.[1] He once wrote: "I detest the law. On the other hand, I love the fever-fits of composition."[4]

Cooke lived for a time at Saratoga, the former home of Daniel Morgan.[5] He died January 20, 1850.[1]
