His father was a distinguished lawyer, John Rogers Cooke. Phillip entered Princeton at age fifteen. At age seventeen, he wrote for the "Knickerbocker Magazine." After college he went to Winchester to pursue the study of law. He wrote verse and prose for the "Virginian" and "The Southern Literary Messenger." By age twenty-one, he was married and was admitted to the bar. His brother was the well-known novelist, John Esten Cooke. His wife was Anne Corbin Burwell. They lived at "The Vineyard." There he wrote much. Sketches, poetry and romantic novels. From his writings, it was clear he loved the Shenandoah and the Blue Ridge, where he hunted and fished. He was stricken with consumption and died very suddenly at his home. [Bio by George_Setz]
