     The Pools were originally Pettipools. They came from Virginia and then to Kentucky, near Cerulean Springs in Trigg County. It is thought that the father of Jackonias Petty Pool was Benjamin who was the son of Peter Petti Pool and his wife Elizabeth Journey. Peter’s father was Seth Petti Pool who married Martha Ragsdale. This is not proven but there is strong evidence that this is the line. As they moved south, they shortened the name to P. Pool and then to Pool.  At some point, the family moved to the Quitman, Mississippi area, Many of Dr. Pool's children were born there.  He began his medical practice under the supervision of Dr. Anthony Arrington whose daughter, Westduck, he later married. The practice of medicine was very different then, but he later went to New Orleans and studied medicine at what was to become the Tulane Medical School. When the War Between the States broke out, he signed up at Enterprise, Ms.  He was a Second Lieutenant in Company F, Second Regiment of Mississippi Cavalry, CSA. Company F was known as the East Mississippi Guards of Clarke County and collected at Enterprise on April 17, 1862. James W. Morgan was Captain of Company F.  After the war, the family moved to Ellisville, MS where Dr. Pool practiced medicine for the remainder of his life.
