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. Please note the questions / comments from Viola Jones.

If you are expert on this line, please feel free to completely re-write this bio. Please delete any data that you know to be wrong or question any data where the correct information remains uncertain. Please include your primary references.


Portions of this bio info comes from research developed to try to determine if the Spartanburg Line of Poole ties to the nearby Greenville SC / Laurens SC / Edgefield SC lines of Pool (which are, in turn, believed to tie back to the Elizabeth City County Line of Poole / Poole which dates back to 1620 emigrants). At this time, this connection remains "speculative".

Y Chromosome DNA results, Y haplogroup , and / or autosomal DNA results from descendants of this William Poole would be very helpful in proving / disproving which line of Poole / Pool tie to him.

the following is an alternative edition of Viola Jones' notes on William the Tailor Pool--- much of it is the same as shown above, but this "edition" of notes contains additional remarks.

William “The Taylor” Poole Biography William Poole was born, most likely, in England on 22 June 1739 and died 13 October 1816. He was buried on property north of Lawson’s Fork Creek, Spartanburg County, South Carolina in the “grave yard” mentioned in a deed recorded 3 June 1836, Spartanburg Deed Book W, pages 4-6. William was called "Taylor" because he was a tailor by trade. This identifying name was used in county records to tell him apart from William Poole, "Iron Master", who recorded land in local deeds during the same decades. In 1785 South Carolina lawmakers created 5 new counties out of the backcountry district Ninty-Six. One of these counties was Spartan, later known as Spartanburgh/Spartanburg. Once county officials were appointed, court services began on the third Monday in June, 1785. This first court meeting convened at a mill on Tyger River. A permanent courthouse location was not selected until 1787. William Poole was a member of the first jury. Spartanburg County court records name William Poole (tailor) as a juror in a number of early court sessions from 1785 to 1795. William Poole owned a large amount of land on both sides of the Pacolet River. While his home was in a rural location, it was not isolated. Mills’ Atlas, 1825, Spartanburg District, South Carolina shows an area called Pacolet Mineral Springs just north of the Poole home, where wife Elizabeth Poole still lived in 1825. Pacolet Mineral Springs was a stagecoach stop in 1790, according to old stagecoach time tables. The property on which William Poole’s home stood contained springs that were referred to in some 2 deeds as “healing springs”. His home was a block house built for defense, a common style of eighteenth century construction in remote areas. A picture of William Poole’s house is on page 271 of Stovall Connections by Rolo P. Stovall. Today, Poole’s Spring Road lies where Pacolet Mineral Springs was marked on the 1825 Mills’ Atlas. This land, which included not only William Poole’s home but also son Benjamin Poole’s property, later became known as Poole’s Bend. (See map of location of Poole’s Bend.) The designation describes the curve that the Pacolet River takes north of its confluence with Lawson’s Fork Creek. Existing cement footings that once supported an old road crossing Lawson’s Fork Creek are marked “Poole’s Bend.” William Poole married Elizabeth Stovall (daughter of John Bartholomew Stovall and Dorcas) on 15 Dec 1760 in Granville County, North Carolina. Elizabeth Stovall was born on 10 Feb 1739 in Goochland County, Virginia. She died about 1827 in Spartanburg County, South Carolina and was buried there, most likely next to her husband. Their children were: James Poole Sr., Mary Ann Poole, George Poole, Stovall Poole, Judith Poole, Elizabeth Poole, William Abijah Poole, Dorcus Abigail Poole, Morgan Poole, John Poole, Sarah Poole, Susan Poole, and Benjamin Poole. The Family of Bartholomew Stovall (Eight Generations of Stovalls in England and America) by Neil D. Thompson (published by The Stovall Family Association in 1993) states on page 123 that William Poole's parents are unknown. It is possible that William Poole first came to the colonies in about 1754 as a young apprentice or indentured servant. William Poole received a grant of 354 acres in North Carolina from Lord Granville on 22 July 1761. The land granted was in Johnson County, on the Neuse River, and included “Pools improvement.” Originally surveyed 8 December 1760, record of the grant is in Granville District Patent Book 14, No. 3295, page 241. Early North Carolina state records include a document containing the names of men who made an oath of allegiance to the American cause at the time of the Revolution. Among the names on this list are William Poole, Thomas Stovall (Elizabeth’s father), John Stovall (Elizabeth’s brother), and other Stovall family members. On 12 October 1772, William Poole received a plat of 250 acres on Beaverdam Creek, waters of Fairforest, Craven County. The land was actually in Ninty-Six District. A grant was issued for the property 9 September, 1774. The South Carolina Department of Archives and History, Columbia, South Carolina maintains the Colonial Plat, Grant, and Memorial records for the state. Sale of the 250 acres, 26 December 1778, is recorded in Union County Deed Book C, pages 144-145. Spartanburg County Deed Book A, page 220, records William Poole’s purchase, from Laurens Reddy, of 150 acres north of the Pacolet River on 5 December 1786. Included in the purchase was an area along the Pacolet called “Troft Shoals and portions of an old mill seat”. Since he served as a Spartanburg County juror in 1785, William Poole and family must have been living in the area by that date. William Poole was granted a state plat of 777 acres on the north side of the “Pacolet River and branches of Thickety Creek, Spartanburg County” on 25 September 1801. He generously gave several of his children portions of this land “for love and affection.” This limestone upland between the Pacolet and Broad Rivers was also where future in-law families, including the Pettits and Lipscombs, lived. Goucher Baptist Church is located along Goucher Creek, north-east of William Poole’s 777 acres on the Pacolet River and “branches of Thickety Creek”. The Goucher community is one of Spartanburg County’s earliest settlement areas. Occupation of this area began prior to the Revolution. (Goucher was the location of Fort Thicketty, the scene of a skirmish in the Revolutionary War.) Today, Goucher Creek and Thicketty Creek are in Cherokee County. Until 1897, the land along these creeks was part of Spartanburg County. Existing minutes for Goucher Baptist Church, dating from 1795 to 1800, refer to William Poole as a church clerk and later a church elder. First members of the church included the Pettit, the Mathis, and the Brown families, whose children married Poole siblings. The minute record dated 1816-1819 documents William Poole’s death date.

THE FAMILY OF BARTHOLOMEW STOVALL (Eight Generations of Stovalls in England and America) by Neil D. Thompson published by: The Stovall Family Association 1993, sates on page 123 that William "Taylor" Poole's parents are unknown.

William was a tailor by trade, his property on the Pacolet River had some springs that were considered as a health resort. Part of this property is owned by Poole descendents today. Thus William is referred to as William "Tailor or Taylor" and William Healing Springs in many records.

William Poole tailored a suit for one of the presidents the wool for this suit was ordered from England at $30 per yard.

There was a William Poole north of the Poole Property on the Pacolet River. This William was known as the "Iron Master". They are always identified with "Tailor or "Healing Springs" and "Iron Master" to keep them separated.

Biography

see the end of this bio for some public posted notes of Wm the Taylor Pool / Poole

William was called "Tailor" because he was a Tailor by trade . Some researchers note that he made a fine suit for the President of the United States.

there are inconsistent views / bio's for this Wm Poole , most identify him as the same man as "Pacolet" Poole (from the area where he lived) while a few others say he was called Wm the tailor to distinguish him from Pacelot Poole . Some say that he was also called "William Healing Springs". Others note additional men named William Pool / Poole. Clearly additional research and or expert assistance is needed for this profile.

inserted here are questions and comments from Viola Jones who researched this line and posted information at rootsweb (public domain info)

additional work is needed to resolve questions on this profile;

On July 23, 2015 at 00:54GMT Viola Jones wrote: William's birth state is not known. He married Elizabeth Stovall in Granville CO NC. 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

William “The Taylor” Poole Biography William Poole was born, most likely, in England on 22 June 1739 and died 13 October 1816. He was buried on property north of Lawson’s Fork Creek, Spartanburg County, South Carolina in the “grave yard” mentioned in a deed recorded 3 June 1836, Spartanburg Deed Book W, pages 4-6. William was called "Taylor" because he was a tailor by trade. This identifying name was used in county records to tell him apart from William Poole, "Iron Master", who recorded land in local deeds during the same decades. In 1785 South Carolina lawmakers created 5 new counties out of the backcountry district Ninty-Six. One of these counties was Spartan, later known as Spartanburgh/Spartanburg. Once county officials were appointed, court services began on the third Monday in June, 1785. This first court meeting convened at a mill on Tyger River. A permanent courthouse location was not selected until 1787. William Poole was a member of the first jury. Spartanburg County court records name William Poole (tailor) as a juror in a number of early court sessions from 1785 to 1795. William Poole owned a large amount of land on both sides of the Pacolet River. While his home was in a rural location, it was not isolated. Mills’ Atlas, 1825, Spartanburg District, South Carolina shows an area called Pacolet Mineral Springs just north of the Poole home, where wife Elizabeth Poole still lived in 1825. Pacolet Mineral Springs was a stagecoach stop in 1790, according to old stagecoach time tables. The property on which William Poole’s home stood contained springs that were referred to in some 2 deeds as “healing springs”. His home was a block house built for defense, a common style of eighteenth century construction in remote areas. A picture of William Poole’s house is on page 271 of Stovall Connections by Rolo P. Stovall. Today, Poole’s Spring Road lies where Pacolet Mineral Springs was marked on the 1825 Mills’ Atlas. This land, which included not only William Poole’s home but also son Benjamin Poole’s property, later became known as Poole’s Bend. (See map of location of Poole’s Bend.) The designation describes the curve that the Pacolet River takes north of its confluence with Lawson’s Fork Creek. Existing cement footings that once supported an old road crossing Lawson’s Fork Creek are marked “Poole’s Bend.” William Poole married Elizabeth Stovall (daughter of John Bartholomew Stovall and Dorcas) on 15 Dec 1760 in Granville County, North Carolina. Elizabeth Stovall was born on 10 Feb 1739 in Goochland County, Virginia. She died about 1827 in Spartanburg County, South Carolina and was buried there, most likely next to her husband. Their children were: James Poole Sr., Mary Ann Poole, George Poole, Stovall Poole, Judith Poole, Elizabeth Poole, William Abijah Poole, Dorcus Abigail Poole, Morgan Poole, John Poole, Sarah Poole, Susan Poole, and Benjamin Poole. The Family of Bartholomew Stovall (Eight Generations of Stovalls in England and America) by Neil D. Thompson (published by The Stovall Family Association in 1993) states on page 123 that William Poole's parents 3 are unknown. It is possible that William Poole first came to the colonies in about 1754 as a young apprentice or indentured servant. William Poole received a grant of 354 acres in North Carolina from Lord Granville on 22 July 1761. The land granted was in Johnson County, on the Neuse River, and included “Pools improvement.” Originally surveyed 8 December 1760, record of the grant is in Granville District Patent Book 14, No. 3295, page 241. Early North Carolina state records include a document containing the names of men who made an oath of allegiance to the American cause at the time of the Revolution. Among the names on this list are William Poole, Thomas Stovall (Elizabeth’s father), John Stovall (Elizabeth’s brother), and other Stovall family members. On 12 October 1772, William Poole received a plat of 250 acres on Beaverdam Creek, waters of Fairforest, Craven County. The land was actually in Ninty-Six District. A grant was issued for the property 9 September, 1774. The South Carolina Department of Archives and History, Columbia, South Carolina maintains the Colonial Plat, Grant, and Memorial records for the state. Sale of the 250 acres, 26 December 1778, is recorded in Union County Deed Book C, pages 144-145. Spartanburg County Deed Book A, page 220, records William Poole’s purchase, from Laurens Reddy, of 150 acres north of the Pacolet River on 5 December 1786. Included in the purchase was an area along the Pacolet called “Troft Shoals and portions of an old mill seat”. Since he served as 4 a Spartanburg County juror in 1785, William Poole and family must have been living in the area by that date. William Poole was granted a state plat of 777 acres on the north side of the “Pacolet River and branches of Thickety Creek, Spartanburg County” on 25 September 1801. He generously gave several of his children portions of this land “for love and affection.” This limestone upland between the Pacolet and Broad Rivers was also where future in-law families, including the Pettits and Lipscombs, lived. Goucher Baptist Church is located along Goucher Creek, north-east of William Poole’s 777 acres on the Pacolet River and “branches of Thickety Creek”. The Goucher community is one of Spartanburg County’s earliest settlement areas. Occupation of this area began prior to the Revolution. (Goucher was the location of Fort Thicketty, the scene of a skirmish in the Revolutionary War.) Today, Goucher Creek and Thicketty Creek are in Cherokee County. Until 1897, the land along these creeks was part of Spartanburg County. Existing minutes for Goucher Baptist Church, dating from 1795 to 1800, refer to William Poole as a church clerk and later a church elder. First members of the church included the Pettit, the Mathis, and the Brown families, whose children married Poole siblings. The minute record dated 1816-1819 documents William Poole’s death date.

William's birth state is not known. He married Elizabeth Stovall in Granville CO NC. 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.

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-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 Thomas 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.
