Dear Mr. Folkman,
Thank you for your question to History Hub! The records you seek may be in the custody of NARA’s satellite repository at the U.S. Military Academy (West Point) as part of Record Group 404. A cursory search of the digitized records there reveals a number of references to Mr. St. George Cooke’s time at the military academy, the majority of which occur within the school’s registers and its annual reports from the time of his educational tenure. If you have further interest in his admissions records outside of the bounds of these digital records, you can also contact the academy archives and special collections staff at this link.
If you are also interested in Mr. St. George Cooke’s tenure with the United States Army, the National Archives at Washington, D.C. has custody of many of the records you seek within Record Group 94 (Records of the Adjutant General’s Office) and Record Group 153 (Records of the Army Judge Advocate General). The majority of the records in RG 94 will be related to his military service and service record while those in RG 153 will pertain to courts-martial over which he presided as a commander in the United States Army. For a reference request regarding these records, you can contact the reference staff in Washington D.C. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again, thank you for your inquiry to History Hub and best of luck in your research!
Wonderful! Thank you so much for your comprehensive advice.
