Biographical or historical data
John Esten Cooke (1830 – 1886) was an American novelist, born in Virginia and noted for writing about that state. He illustrated Virginia life and history in the novels, The Virginia Comedians (1854), and The Wearing of the Gray, a tale of the American Civil War, and more formally in a respected Virginia history. He was the author of The Youth of Jefferson. Cooke was one of 13 children of John Rogers Cooke and Maria Pendleton Cooke. He was born on the family's plantation, "Amber's Hill," near Winchester, Virginia. He studied and practiced law briefly in Richmond. He abandoned that in 1854 after his father’s death, and almost immediately became a successful novelist and prolific short story writer, eventually authoring 31 books and almost 200 published articles and poems. In 1867, Cooke married Frances Page and settled down three miles north of Boyce, Virginia, to become a prosperous farmer and gardener. He had three children. He died of typhoid fever at his home, "The Briars." Cooke was buried in Old Chapel Cemetery in Millwood, Virginia.
