i have just begun searching for POOLER data for my son-in-law. There was a Phineas POOLER b. 1815 NY and his wife, Mary Ann MURWIN b. 1815 NY who setted in LaSalle Co., IL and lived there until their deaths. Phineas had a brother named Ruben b. 1808 Lock, Cayuga Co., NY (according to the internet) who m. Catherine MURWIN. Catherine d. Astabula Co., OH and Ruben came to LaSalle Co., IL with his son, George B. POOLER. Phineas and Mary Ann had the following children: Fannie M. b. 1842, Reuben H. b. 1845, Adelia b. 1849 and Charles Eugene b. 1850 all in Uniontown, Astabula Co., OH. I have to think that this connects with your Phineas somehow because that is not a very common name.
