William Henry Cook(e) or Harry Cook(e)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Cooke, Harries, Cook
I am searching for a William Henry/Harry Cooke, whose father's name is possible Henry Charles Cooke or Charles Henry Cooke. He was living in Huyton Quarry near Liverpool in the early 1950s, he was married. He also had a relationship with Pauline Harries, who was 23 at the time, William/Harry was about 10-15 years older than Pauline. Pauline gave birth to a daughter Elaine in 1953 - Elaine is now trying to find her father.

William/Harry emigrated shortly after Elaine was born to either Canada or the USA. I know it's a long shot, but any pointers or information would be gratefully received - Elaine is really keen to trace her father.

Looking for any info on a William Henry/Harry Cook(e) who arrived in the US, possibly Massachusetts in the 1950s and who may be Elaine's father. Many thanks

Do you know William's wife's name? and whether they remained married?

Not entirely sure of his wife's name, could be Maureen, or Mary - I am following up a marriage between a William H Cook to a Maureen Jones to see if that matches, as far as we know they stayed together and emigrated together.
