* Note - there are three possible men who are most likely the same man. Since records come from such different sources, it is difficult to ascertain if these three men are the same, but this Author is of the opinion that they are. I just cannot prove it without a shadow of a doubt. Therefore...

This man is known to have been a captain in the Salisbury District Minutemen under Col. Thomas Wade, then under Col. Griffith Rutherford in the 1st Salisbury District Minutemen. His home county was not identified.

One Capt. James Cook is known from Continental Line records, and his home county was not identified.

There is a Capt. James Cook identified in Tryon County under Col. William Graham in 1775, then in Rutherford County in 1779 under Col. Andrew Hampton.
