I found only 1 Zook with those initials and he ended the war as a private so no dice there. I then looked at the top 50 hits under the names "Zook", "Zuch", and "Zuck" and came up with zilch. A more thorough search may be called for.

Thanks for the extra effort in searching. I like your use of alliteration: "Zook", "Zuch", and "Zuck" and came up with zilch! I didn't think to try variant spellings. Maybe Peter or Paul for a first name? The Library of Congress sometimes has errors with the identifications.

I don't know if you found this "United States Congressional Serial Set " Portraits of Army Officers XX1 Page 27 Zook Major P.J. s. 1801 . Might be worth a search .

I found one Peter Zook but he was a private in an Indiana regiment, as I recall.

For the search that I did, I just looked up the last name and scanned the records, regardless of the first name.

Thanks. I'm wondering if there is an error at the LOC.

I did a quick scan of the ORs as well and only came across 2 Zooks. One was General Samuel K. Zook and the other was a Lieutenant Zook who served as a staff officer for General Mahlon Manson. Manson mentioned Lt. Zook in his report as serving with distinction and courage but there is no mention of his first name anywhere in the records. I don't recall if his regiment was mentioned to look him up that way either.

Additional observations:
  • He is a dandy
  • Does not look like a frockcoat, but a short jacket
  • You can see both double trouser stripes all the way to his waist
  • Has the regulation Civil War (1861) seven button front for Colonel and Major
  • Unusual button pattern
I was thinking possibly post war Major, but no longer think so, pension request records from wife could possibly shed light.
I was looking to see if SK Zook had a son who served.

I can't find a wife or children of him.
