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

William Poole, birth place unknown, he married Elizabeth Stovall in Granville, CO NC. Willliam was know by the Tailor, Pacelot William and William of Healing Springs. His house was made of logs and was a stagecoach station. The house was burned when some boys went inside and built a fire in the fireplace. The house sat on a high ridge overlooking the Pacelot river referred to as "Poole's Bend". Yes the Springs are still in existence and is now posted because of vandals. The spring water was analized by a relative and is "the purest water the Analiese has ever seen". The sand in the bottom of the springs is a light blue color and has many feeders continually feeding water into the springs. There are some black fish in the springs. I have never seen fish that black.

Poole-1424 and Poole-398 appear to represent the same person because: same dates, wife and child

Poole-398 and Poole-1421 appear to represent the same person because: I removed the incorrect parents and now we should be able to merge.

Poole-1421 and Poole-398 do not represent the same person because: William is not the son of Edward and Obedience. Their son William moved to Nashville TN. AND Obedience was two years younger then William who married Elizabeth Stovall. William was a Tailor not Taylor. He was a Tailor as one of his trades.

Poole-1421 and Poole-398 appear to represent the same person because: dates are the same, wife is the same, need to document the differences in the place names unless definitive resources exist.
