Facts and Events
Name Elizabeth Poole
Gender Female
Birth? ABT 1767

From A. Maitland: "That she was one of Solomon Poole's daughters is proved in the wills of her Aunt Jamima and Uncle Townsend's Wills who called her Elizabeth Archer."

From research of Joyce Poole: In the Last Will and Testament of Andrew Corsa (who married Mary Poole, sister to Elizabeth) it is noted he names a 'Benjamin Archer, Sr.' as one of his inheritors and as his 'best friend'. Could this possibly be the husband or family relative to Elizabeth?? Research needed here.

Also, the following reference to a Benjamin Archer, Sr. - witnessed by Peter Bussing whose daughter, Helena, married Andrew Corsa, as wife #1: Notes Peter Bussing along with Teunis (Anthony) Valentine and Leonard (?) witnessed the will of Colus Brown dated May 28, 1758; proved November 7, 1758. In the name of God, Amen. I, Colus Brown being in a reasonable state of health. After payment of all debts, I leave to my friend, Benjamin Archer, Sr., 6 pounds. To my God child, Susannah Woolsey, 10 pounds. To Johanes McClanan, 10 pounds. The said two children are to be sent to school, and necessary learning. I leave all the rest of my estate to my honored mother, Catharine Brown, and to my brothers and sisters, Gerrit, Hannah Benson, Effie Woolsey, Mary Nodine, Elizabeth Corsa and Abraham. I make Evert Benson executor. "New York Historical Society Collections 1896, Abstracts of Wills", Vol. V.,1754-1760, p 270. On file, Liber 21, p 141.
