William  married 2-19-1789 to a lady some believe to be Lois Moore.

                                  William Pool                              

William Pool and children are found in Lexington Co. SC, and apparently he was a  large land owner at which he eventually deeded to his children and grandchildren through the years.  1.Joseph Henry 1791 2.Jacob Pool 1792 3.Fredrick Abram 1804 4.Mary L.1806 5.Catherine 1816
6.Martha 1820 7.Jane S. A. 1829. Some of the children remained in the Lexington area, while others moved to Alabama and stayed there, while others moved on to Texas.
Frederick Abram and others stayed in Alabama.


Jacob Pool moved from Lexington Co. SC to Montgomery Co. Alabama abt. 1830. ( Jacob's father, William Pool and the other children were listed in that same county )He stayed there until abt. 1840.From Alabama he moved his family to Polk Co. Texas in covered wagons , to become hunters. He brought along his wife Catherine Sightler Pool, sons John William Pool, Henry Joseph Pool, George Washington Pool , daughters Mary Ann , Mariada Anies, and Martha Elizabeth. Jacob and sons hunted the Big Thicket and it has been said that on one hunt they killed 13 black bear, all weighing 700-800 lbs. each. They also hunted deer, and wild turkey. After tanning the skins of the bear and deer were bundled and sent to Houston until the law was passed  that said the hunters had to have individual buyers because the public thought they were getting too rich. Jacob Pool died 2-25-1852 and his wife and children were still listed in Polk Co, Tx.
The Pool Family eventually moved near Richards Texas and that area was called Pool's Community.The family attended church at Pool's Chapel which is now known as Union Grove Church.
On August 17, 1884 the Union Grove Church was established and John William Pool was part of the Baptist group. The church was both Methodist and Baptist. The land for the church was donated by William Joseph Pool,it had been a gift to him from his father John William. The land was part of the Hezaki Farris Land. The Pool's also donated lumber to build the church, from their saw mill , as well as their time. The first building was made of rough lumber and was nailed with square nails. The siding was 3/4 inch x 6 inch lapped lumber. The roof was made of split boards. The shutters of the windows were also made of lumber and at times when it was very dark, making it so that at times the clerk could not read the minutes. They used kerosene lamps to light the building until 1949 when electric lights were installed.There was no heat in the building and many times the services were not held because it was too cold. Through the years the church has gone through , several renovations and a rebuild .
The Pool Cemetery is located behind The Union Grove Church, where you can find many members of the Pool family and their families. John William and Joannah Welch graves are in a enclosed fence area near the front of the cemetery.
From stories told Uncle Eben made some of the finest syrup in the area. The Pool's also raised peanuts and as my husbands recalls the peanut butter his grandparents made, being the best he ever tasted.

This page has been created as a legacy to the Pool's.
Many thanks to Gwen, aunt Marie, aunt Elsie, Nancy, Bill Poole and Duncan Akers and a wonderful Pool researcher, by the name of Audrey Pool, for the information we have listed on this site. I would also like to include a big thanks to Vera Wimberly for her assistance in the Montgomery Co. research. I would also like to add that much of these works comes from Mary Vick Cossards   research.
 

I made a post about Frederick Abram Pool and almost immediately had Bill Poole respond. Bill has been most generous with all of the family info he has been gathering for many years.
Bill sent maps, census, names, pictures etc and a most pleasant phone call.
Bill is a direct descendent of Frederick Abram Pool and this makes him one of our direct lines as well. Bill is from Alabama!!! Bill has been so generous with pages on land holdings, census reports, family files, pictures of his family and has sent me a 1 inch thick folder of all his material, including maps of where the Pool's were in the Lexington Co, Sc area's. I want to take this opportunity to welcome Bill and his family to our Texas Pool line. I will be adding more and more of the things he has sent us little by little, but first I must attend sending him all the info we have gathered as well..

By the way the way Bill Poole spells his name, he says that the "E" was adding on by his father.

Thank you cousin Bill Poole!!!


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Duncan Aker to our Pool web page. Duncan contacted me awhile back, with his info about George Washington Pool and then sent me a very generous  file that he has been building on with alot of wonderful information, pictures, bible records, maps, family files, about William Pool's father George Philip Puhl
(Pool) and grandfather Philip Puhl ( Pool) Cousin Duncan is from Lexington Tennessee. I will be adding more of his info along the way also. Duncan is a direct descendent of George Washington Pool

Thank you cousin Duncan Aker !!!

With combined efforts of everyone we can and will have every Pool in our line listed here. If you have anything to add to the names, dates, stories, pictures etc. Please contact me and I will be glad to add anything you have to our POOL page..
