Nathan Burrell Cook (1835-1917) was born to John Pope and Charlotte Kirk Massey Cook on July 20, 1835, in Lowndes County, Alabama. He married Sallie Johnson, a young orphan, in 1857, and they had three children. In May 1862, he joined the Alabama Infantry of the Confederate Forces, but was later transferred to the Army's Medical Department for his pharmaceutical training. While he was at war, all three of his children died of disease. He and Sallie moved to Pensacola during Reconstruction and settled at the corner of De Villiers and Gregory Streets.
