Searching for the father and maiden name of the mother of Emmett B. Duke, B: 1902. Emmett's mother evidently had previously married a Griffin (1910 Oktibbeha Co. census lists Willie M. Griffin (age 14) and Annie Lee Griffin (age 12). In 1910 Lizzie Griffin Duke is married to George York and has child, George, Jr. (age 9 mos.). Family remembers Emmett's father as "Willie", which is probably short for William. It is said he was a traveling photographer.

Any help/suggestions appreciated,
