Sources for Emmett Leon Cook & Mildred Ruth Huffaker

Descendants of Leon and Mildred continue to live in Texas while younger siblings in the family moved to northern California and Oregon.

A grandson of Leon—James Kevin Cook—did a Y-DNA test and the results were a very close match to descendants of immigrant William Cook who came to Nova Scotia in the early 1760s. Kevin Cook would push back the paper trail of his ancestors to1808 in Spartanburg, Union County, South Carolina, and while that would be invaluable evidence, it has yet to be independently corroborated. Refined DNA testing and additional paper work might yet settle the question positively and conclusively.
