For Ben or any of our Mormon forum members, the Perseus Richmond Dispatch notes for Oct 10 1861 St George Cooke's arrival (not sure 'where'). The name sounded familiar and indeed he was connected to the Mormon Battalion.

One historian even associates him with St George Utah: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/680197285/St-George-likely-named-after-an-LDS-apostle.html

Just gleanings from our absolutely great new Perseus collection!

Thanks of course to Logos.
