Thomas Pool b.1753 of Raritan,NJ (son of John & Sarah) m. 1775, Eliz. Adams
This is the New London, Connecticut Thomas Pool family claiming Raritan NJ origins. On pg 337, New London, Conn. Vital Records, the marriage of this Thomas Pool is recorded. Fortunately, his parents names are given here, as John [Pool] and wife, Sarah _______ Pool. With the area of Raritan, New Jersey named, these clues are significant to distinguish this man away from the other Thomas Pools, at issue with the Poole DNA Project, et al. The year of birth given here as 1753, is sourced from a page which I purchased from the New London, Conn. Historical Society during my trip there several years ago. On the top of this page, I wrote 929.3 B47 which should be the book's identifying number on the spine. But also at the top is imprinted 220 B47 1784, which seems to be a library accession? number or ... This page includes a bible full of transcribed typed info on this family, including a 1775 Family Register. So perhaps this page was typed from the original bible.

Thomas Pool (1753/1828) names daughter, Sarah Field Pool (1780/1801)
1780 | New London, CT
The daughter named Sarah Field Pool, or also cited on this page as Sally Field Pool surely possesses the major clue (via her name), to point back to Raritan, NJ. She married Col. Samuel Green in 1798 [p337 VR New London CT Vol3 p162 and in bible record], and appears to have had a child named William Pool Green in 1801, born shortly before she died.
Years ago, I clipped this while seeking NJ Pool/Poole YDNA:

This #046, points to the wife being named Sarah Field, and I was unable to resolve if this was the mother of Thomas Pool of New London, CT (1753/1828). It would appear, that this name was given to a daughter, and as such, it would seem likely that this was the mother's name. Could a FIELD researcher please confirm?
Unfortunately, no one writes...
Have not reviewed this recent 2012 find:
Captain Pool- so be sure to group this with the correct line...not confirmed as this one.

[do not know if old links are still active...]
And the tombstone pictured at link above, for Lydia Adams, seems to be Lydia PYGAN, wife of Congregational Minister of New London, CT, Eliphalet ADAMS
This particular headstone is the first that shows definite signs of vandalism in the diagonal scratch marks across the stone. Oh, what I would do to the people who made those marks if I could get ahold of them in The Castle DeSpair's dungeon!!! In any event, this is the first skull soul effigy that I stumbled across here, and I was of course most delighted! [I am repasting this here from one link]

Eliphalet Adams was pretty well-known preacher. Here's what Answers.Com has to say about him:
The son of Dedham, MA's, second minister, Eliphalet Adams graduated from Harvard College in 1694. He preached in various places for the next 15 years, until, in 1709, he was ordained a Congregational minister in New London, CT. That same year he married Lydia Pygan.
Adams was a popular preacher, and many of his sermons were published.
