1B. James Richard POOLE b. abt 1819 in Clark CO., IN; d. 28-Oct-1868 in Santa Cruz, CA.

James was raised by Mr. and Mrs. Wm. G. Buffum. He left from Independence, MO in 1845 with a wagon train captained by Joel Palmer for Jackson County, OR. This train combined with that of the Barlow party and was the one which opened the famous "Barlow Trail".

As near as I can find from little bits of information here and there, James Richard POOLE was a brother of William Thomas POOLE. There is a reference to him in the Jacksonville, OR museum as being the uncle of Martha Melinda POOLE, William Thomas POOLE's 4th child.

James Richard POOLE and his partner, James CLUGGAGE, were running a "Jack Ass Freight" business between Portland, OR and the mines in California in January of 1852 and stopped for the night in an area that is now within the corporate limits of Jacksonville, OR. They made the original gold strike there the next morning. There is a small monument to them a couple of blocks south of the center of town.
