Facts and Events
Copied from Poole Researcher: "Data on marriage, dates, obtained from web sites: www.geocities,.com/Heartland/Trail/2311/Collins/people/p000002y.html on 2/19/2005 www.worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db+maitland-p[oole&id=I0142, accessed 11-10-2002.
Also on a report from the LDS church records, identifying Pearcy Poole and Mary Smith Poole as parents of James Poole, with appropriate dates, etc.
The personal Will of Pearcy Poole was copied and read from the LDS archive files for Wills for Chenango County, New York, and the names of his children are listed as stated in the Will, not necessarily in birth order. It is 'believed' that "Betscy" is probably the same as "Elizabeth", as I have Elizabeth (Poole) Stowell and her family noted in Federal Census living next to her two brothers. In the probate of the Will, 'Elizabeth" is named, but not a 'Betsy'. Only Bdates of James and Elizabeth are known at time of this writing (3-22-05), per Alfred M. Poole Family Bible; Jackson W. birthyear is based on his age noted the the Federal Census. Wife of Pearcy was only identified as "Mary" in his Will. Her maiden surname is still under research for confirmation. LDS sites show her as Mary Smith.
Pearcy Poole's Last Will and Testament was created December 5, 1836 in the Town and County of Westchester, New York and proofed the 2nd day of July, 1845 in the village of Norwich in the County of Chenango, state of New York, pages 472-475."
