Hi: I found confirmation of their marriage: Meredith Pool to
Mary Simirson. Notice the different spelling of surnames. Record states marriage
date of Oct 30,1849 North Carolina USA. Record with info. North Carolina,
Marriage Collection 1741-2004. His residence in 1850 and 1860 is Davidson NC.
Meredith Poole Fort Macon was the residence in January 1865.
There are 2 trees on Ancestry.ca surname : Bear and Brink. His date of birth is
recorded as 1826. You might know this already but I will type it:
The Civil War
Soldiers Details Poole, Meredith

anymore info please post it and we can search on...Marie
