James W. Pool is a son of John and Sarah A. (Eubanks) Pool, natives of
Kentucky. His grandfather, William Pool, was
a native of Maryland, and moved to what is now Louisville, Ky., building,
as is authentically stated, the first cabin on that
site, in company with Samuel Shew. They each brought sixty negroes with
them, but finding them unprofitable, sold most of them to emigrants. Mr.
Pool removed to Bowling Green, where he and Mr. McCleardy were the original
patentees. He had a family of ten children, seven born in Maryland, the
rest in Kentucky. He soon after came to Gallatin
Co., Ill., where he died; John Pool married Sarah A., daughter of James
Eubanks. They were the parents of ten children-Frances Ellen (Mrs. B.
Hale), James W., Nelson D. George T. Louisa (Mrs. James Chapman), Sarah Ann
(Mrs. Henry Rainey), Mary Ann (deceased), Roenna (Mrs. Jesse Lowell),
Rebecca J. (Mrs. Hosea J. Pearce), and
John (deceased). Nelson D. and George T. were both killed in the late war.
Nelson D. was killed by the kick of a horse while attending to the keeping
of telegraph lines intact. George T., a veteran, was wounded before
Nashville, having a
leg shot off; and dying twenty-one days later. James W. lived at home till
his twenty-third year, when he followed the river between this county and
New Orleans, trading in chickens, two years. In 1849 he married T. L.
of James Brockett. To them have been born seven children, six reaching
maturity-John W. (married Florida Spence, daughter of John Spence), James
Fred (married Margaret Buttery, daughter of William Buttery), Thomas Alex.
(deceased), Ellen (married James M. Buttery), Nelson D., Solon Ellsworth,
and Joseph C. (deceased). Mr. Pool has 150 acres or land, 120 of it under
cultivation. He has been School Director of No.8 for twelve consecutive
years. He is
a member of the Missionary Baptist church.
