Tombstone Tuesday--William Lanham Pool

     William Lanham Pool is my paternal great great great grandfather. Sarah is his second wife and not my blood relation. 

     William was the son of Rev. Asby Pool and Vilender Lanham. He was born in Monongalia County, (West) Virginia in June 1817 and died in Monongalia County, West Virginia on October 07, 1911.

     He followed in the steps of his father becoming a minister; however, with the Methodist Protestant Church.  His first wife, was my great great great grandmother Ann Louise Frum Pool

     William served in the Civil War as a Corporal with Company I, 14th West Virginia Infantry.
     He and Sarah are buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Monongalia County, West Virginia.
