I am researching the line below. My father is the Grandson of Walker Harris Pool. I have a lot of information from Walker Harris Pool's Family all the way through his children, grandchildren & Greats & great greats as well as 3rd, 4th & even 5th great grandchildren. I just need to add to this recent information that My Aunt Maureen Poole compiled. Her husband is the Benny Paul Poole of the sixth Generation listed here. Does any of this look familiar to anybody? I will gladly trade info with anybody that can help me add to this....

Please let me know if anything pops for anybody here. I am so anxious to work with this new info & all that I know will come. It is such a pleasure to know that my line of Pool/Poole is of the Middleton Pool & Bateman Pool lines. Shortly, I will post this info combined with the research I have in order to show a more complete listing of the names. Some of the children are not listed here & the original page has been taken down - I believe the site got sold. This was compile by an elderly family member who worked on it for 20 or 30 years & is only a partial listing of her notebooks full of research.
Sincerely, Stella C. Poole (Great Grand-Daughter of Walker Harris Poole)
