Looking for relatives of John V. COOKE of Athol, MA

I am searching for information re: my father, John V. COOKE. He was born in approx. 1908/1909. It is believed that his parents names were Andrew COOKE and Margaret DREW. My dad was born in either New Jersey or Massachussetts. However, at some point he was fostered out and lived with a family by the name of HAYDEN in Athol, MA. He may have had a brother named either Raymond or Roy who worked for the circus at one time. Because my dad was a foster child, very little information is known about him. Your help is appreciated.

Researching John V. COOKE'S family

My father's name was John V. Cook[e] and was born in 1908/1909 to a woman by the name of Margaret Drew and a father by the name of Andrew Cook[e]. They all loved in or near Athol or Worcester MA. They may have had another son by the name of Raymond of Roy who eventually left to join the circue. However, at some point their son John was fostered out to a family by the name of Hayden who lived in Athol, MA. For some reason, we were never allowed to ask questions when we were growing up. After all these years and assuming all parties have passed away, can you help me find any information on these relatives.
