From a history of Robertson County, TN

From 1812 to 1815 the county furnished its full quota for service in the Indian wars and against the British in New Orleans. The enlistments were mostly for only a few months' service, although many enlisted two or three times. A company of mounted infantry was raised by Capt. John Crane, of which

James Cook was first lieutenant, and Josiah D. Hudelston second lieutenant. Among the privates of this company were John Ferguson, John Duncan; Alexander, Benjamin and James Rawls; William, John, James and Nathaniel Crockett; Matthew Morris, Daniel Clark, Samuel Farmer, Patrick Martin and William Mansco. The company was at the battles of Talladega, Horseshoe and New Orleans. At the latter battle it was under the command of James Cook. In 1814 Capt. Richard Crunk raised a company of infantry which participated in the battle of New Orleans. The first lieutenant of this company was Henry Stoltz. Other members were MATTHEW LUTER, James Byrnes, Hugh Lemaster, James Martin, Joseph Gunn,! Peter Frey, Matther Powell, Horatio Sory; James, William and Robert Long, E. Losson and David Alsbrook. During the Seminole war of 1818 one of the companies of the Second Regiment, Tennessee Mounted Infantry, was raised in Robertson County by Capt. James Cook. Of this company

Burrill Pitts was first lieutenant; Cornelius Carmack, second lieutenant, Moses McCarley, third lieutenant; J. W. Crabtree, orderly sergeant, and John Cook, second sergeant. They were mustered into service some time in January, 1818, and returned to their homes in July of the same year.
