Genealogy by the States – Week 17 – Ohio

This entry was posted by on Sunday, 28 April, 2013 at

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Ohio. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Ohio. If you don’t have any connections to Ohio, find a Ohio resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 4/28/2013 – 5/4/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

I don’t have any direct descendants within the state of Ohio. My wife’s ancestor Joseph Dallas Pool was from the state of Georgia. I previously wrote about him when I talked about my Georgia Connections. I tracked one of his sons Joe Henry Poole to Ohio, which is this week’s Ohio Connection.

Joe Henry Pool was the son of Joseph Dallas Pool and Nancy Osborne. He was born on September 2, 1899 in Georgia. Between the years 1921 and 1924. His wife, Anna May Moon, their son William and a daughter moved to Ohio. In 1924, Joe and Anna welcomed another boy to the family. On February 19, 1927, they welcomed Nadine to their growing family. I have not mentioned the names of one known son and one known daughter as it’s possible they are still living. I did not want to mention a living individuals name without first asking them and I was also unable to locate them to ask.

Joe Henry died on Apr 11, 1949 in Cleveland, Ohio. Joe’s wife Anna lived for another 40 years and died on Apr 25, 1989 also in Cleveland, Ohio.

  1. Hi Jim, great idea to highlight the states. I found your blog via The current State of the Week, Ohio, caught my eye because I have ancestors in the counties of Adams, Clinton, Highland, and Warren. Another resource I’d like to recommend is Jane Sheetz of Branches of Discovery, a genealogical research firm in the Cincinnati area. She found some great courthouse records for me recently.
