Cooks, Downs and Barrow

Hi,
I'm Evelyn (Cook) Myers and I am trying to learn more about my Father's side of the family. My dad is Finis Earl Cook, b 7/13/1918, d 5/29/1999, and his parents are Finis Lee Cook, d 1956 (buried at Fort Donelson) and Ludie Downs Cook d. 1940. (buried at Hendron Cemetery, Stewart Co.)
The other children were Lois Cook (Barrow), Lavern Cook(Seese), Rupert Gerald Cook, Joe Cook (killed in an MVA 1930's), Louise Cook, Alpha Mae Cook (Seese). I know that Alpha Mae is still living and I'm not sure about Lois. The rest of the family has passed away. I am in contact with a few of my cousins that know less than I do. The last time I was in Stewart Co, it was at the family reunion 1990.
My husband and I are going to be visiting the area during the second week July 2010, so I can go to Dover and do some research, go to the family cemeteries, and see if there is any family still in the area.
So if anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Evelyn
