"The only way to look into the future is by standing on the shoulders of the past."


For many years we have researched the history of this branch of the
Poole Family who lived and died in Delaware County, Pennsylvania and Newcastle County, Delaware.

We have traced this direct line back to Thomas Poole (1784-1836) and
Elizabeth Skillington Poole (1786-1870).

Thomas and Elizabeth had the following 10 children:

1. Charlotte Poole (1807-1871) married Wesley Clark
2. Sarah Poole b. 1809
3. Wesley Poole (1811-1904) married Mary Williams
4. Richard Poole (1814-1896) married Sarah Ann Brown
Second wife Lydia H. Miller Remington
5. Clayton Poole (1817-1829)
6. Mary Ann Poole b. 1819
7. Jane Eliza Poole (1822-1883) married Samuel Grubb
8. Lewis Poole (1825-1876)
9. Emily Poole (1828-1900) married Davis Barlow
10. Adaline Poole (1831-1913) married Edmund Jones
