Are you sure about Nancy's maiden name? Family Search has it as Nancy Wilson -with.no proof of name, but if I put in Poole, the documents don't match with James. James has a F-A-G here but it has no additional information https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/151668606

There is also an 1880 census that has him as "Minister"
