1820 - Walter, aged 45 and up, was enumerated in Walton County, Georgia with one male, aged 16-18; one male aged 16-26 and two females, aged 10-16. The male in the 16-18 age group is repeated in the 16-26 age group; this means there was only one male, aged 16-26. This is most likely Robert T. Poole whose name first appears in the 1830 census. Robert is living seven enumerations from Walter in the 1830 census and he was between 20 and 30 years of age. The females listed are most likely Mourning and Priscilla Poole, daughters of Walter Poole.

1825 - The March 1, 1825 issue of The Georgia Journal reported that 50 acres of land, the south part of lot number 337, in the 9th District (originally Henry County now Newton County, Georgia), levied on as the property of Joseph Dorsey, to satisfy fifa in favor of Walter Pool.

He was married to Lucy about 1765 in Brunswick County, VA. Walter and his wife, Lucy, sold 440 acres in Mecklenburg County in 1780. Lucy died before 1790. Lucy probably died before 1790 as there were no females listed in Walter's household in the 1790 census. Walter "Cooper" POOLE RS and Lucy had the following children:

+38 i. William POOLE.

+39 ii. Corporal Adam POOL.

+40 iii. Walter POOLE, Jr.

+41 iv. James W. Thomas POOLE was born after 1785 in Mecklenburg County, VA.

He was married to Priscilla "Percilla" before Jan 1801 in Fairfield County, SC. Percilla signed a release of dower in the sale of land on Rock Creek. Priscilla "Percilla" died before 1810.

+43 ii. Hardy Keele POOLE.

+44 iii. Robert T. POOLE.

+45 iv. Morning POOLE.

46 v. Priscilla POOLE was born before 1810 in Fairfield County, SC. According to the 1850 census, Priscilla was born in Georgia about 1810. Since Walter was in Fairfield County, South Carolina in 1810, it is doubtful that Priscilla was born in Georgia. Since Walter's wife, Priscilla, was not listed in the 1810 census, it is probable that she died giving birth to Priscilla in South Carolina.

1850 - Priscilla, age 40, is enumerated as head of household in Newton County, Georgia. Lauretta, age 15, is the only other person in the household.
