Thomas POOL

Thomas POOL

It may be that the 1740 enlistment record which I confirmed long ago with The Society of Cincinnatus, librarian (Wash.DC), regarding Dr. Thomas Pool (read below) is the definitive one. It's time to conclude there is no other record, and this pursuit must cease. Yes, Pool's name was recorded in Col. or Captain John Prescott's papers. Henry Nourse's excellent source: "The military annals of Lancaster, Massachusetts. 1740-1865- Including lists of soldiers serving in the colonial and rev. wars, for Lancastrian towns: Berlin, Bolton, Harvard, Leominster, Sterling". Entry: Thos Pool Lynn 32 [age] Physician May 1st [1740]-- “Of what town born” is the text over column, where town: Lynn, is entered. So 32 yr old Thos Pool, a medical doctor/physician, was born in Lynn [MA], not residing there. Yes, this is my own ancestor who descends from John Pooll, the wealthy miller d.1667 whose English lineage is sought. We were told "De la Pole" growing up, but this seems suspect.
