Please extend or correct this information. Some of the sources cited here are "secondary" sources not considered consistently reliable by William Pool .
This "draft level" profile is consistent with virtually all of the profiles found on public sites which show "William Taylor Poole" to be the father of James Pool of Spartanburg SC. Additional references are being sought.
This is a research tree, developed to try to determine if the Spartanburg Line of Poole ties to the nearby Greenville SC / Laurens SC line of Pool.
Y Chromosome DNA results from descendants of this William Poole would be especially helpful in proving / disproving which line of Poole / Pool tie to him.
William was called "Tailor" because he was a Tailor by trade.
there are inconsistent views / bio's for this Wm Poole , some identify him as the same man as "Pacolet" Poole and others say he was called Wm the tailor to distinguish him from Pacelot Poole . Clarification needed.
inserted here are questions and comments from Viola Jones obviously additional work is needed to resolve questions on this profile.

I do not think that John was named John Bartholomew because that Bartholomew was his father's name and also he had a brother named Bartholomew. This according to my research. William Poole is not the son of Thomas and Obedience Poole. Obedience is 2 years younger than William the Tailor. Thomas' son, William, moved to middle TN where her lived and died.
here is previous write up .... if you are expert on this Poole line, please help correct / edit William "The Tailor" POOLE was born on 22 Jun 1739 in SC. He died in Jan 1817 in Elk Creek, Grayson, North Carolina.. He was buried in Pacelot Township, Spartanburg County, SC. William was called "Taylor" because he was a Tailor by trade. This was to tell him from William POOLE "Iron Master" and other William Pooles in the area. He was also known as "Pacelot" POOLE. He had large holdings on the Pacelot River, and was the first postmaster in that part of South Carolina. His first home in SC, a unique "block house" was owned in 1970 by Dr. Ezell of Spartanburg SC., and was used by his family as a "weekend cottage". He also owned property which contained large springs which people visited for health reasons. The healing springs are said to still be in existence and the property is owned by Poole descendants.
He was married to Elizabeth STOVALL (daughter of John "Bartholomew" STOVALL and Dorcas) on 15 Dec 1760 in Granville County, NC
