  1. My full name is Eugene Robert Poole. I am the son of Jack William Poole and Kathryn Helen Cole Poole Clough. In addition to William Leonard Poole, I have two other siblings, James Victor Poole and Krystal Kathleen Poole. William and James are both deceased, as is our father. Krystal and our mother live in Lakeview Terrace, California. I currently live in Torrance California.

    I am also the great grandson of Frederick William Conaway Snodgrass.

    Thank you for putting this information on the internet. I now know that my paternal grandfather was George W. Poole, a fact that I had no knowledge of prior to reading it here.

    I would be interested in learning where I can trace the George W. Poole lineage further.
