Biography* The Pooles have for generations been prominent in the beloved Nails Creek Church. The first known clerk (probably a charter member) was William Poole (Elijah's grandfather), who also served as Deacon. This William Poole helped build the second church building when the first became too small to accomodate the growing membership. His son, George Poole, was also clerk and Deacon for many years and George's son, Elijah, was recorder of the church activities for a time also.8
