Biographical Sketch

Born in Middle Granville, New York in 1787, Eleutheros Cooke was educated at Union College in Schenectady. Soon after his admission to the bar, Cooke moved with his wife (Martha Carswell) and daughter to Madison, Indiana (1817) where he was joined by neighbors and families from Washington County, New York. In Madison, Cooke opened his law practice. After a trip to New York several years later, Cooke crossed Lake Erie, landing at Sandusky, Ohio. In 1819, Cooke moved his family to Sandusky, becoming one of its earliest and most noted lawyers. He was elected to the Ohio State House of Representatives in 1822, 1823, 1825, and 1840. Cooke was also elected as a Republication to the 22nd Congress, serving from 1831 to 1833. Eleutheros Cooke is credited with receiving the first railroad charter in the United States. Cooke presented the public address for the anniversary of the battle of Fort Meigs before General William Henry Harrison and an audience of 40,000. Eleutheros was the father of Civil war financier, Jay Cooke. Eleutheros Cooke died in 1864.

The Eleutheros Cooke home, completed in 1844, was the first built of stone in Sandusky, Ohio. Located at the corner of Columbus Avenue and Washington Row, the home was relocated in 1878 following the deaths of Cooke and his wife. Today, the home stands at 1415 Columbus Avenue. In 1995, the three-story Greek Revival and its contents were donated to the Ohio Historical Society.
