DR. R.M. POOL was the seventh child born to Timothy B. and Mary (Brown) Pool; the former was born in Rowan County, N.C., in 1803, and died December 17, 1883. The latter was born in the same county in 1806, and died in 1862. The paternal grandparents came to Christian County in 1809, where they remained until 1853, and thence came to Caldwell County, Ky. The father of subject practiced medicine for forty-two years, and was one of the leading physicians of this region. R.M. Pool was born April 23, 1835, on a farm, where he lived until he was eighteen years of age, when he left the tobacco-field of his father, determined to get an education. Up to this time he had received but three weeks of schooling. He attended school and studied medicine seven years, when he located at Parkersville, Lyon Co., Ky., and began practice. In 1861 he came to Caldwell County, and has since remained, enjoying a lucrative practice. He was married February 10, 1858, to Rebecca A. Stephens, who was born in 1843. She has borne him ten children, of whom eight are now living: James M., Mary F., Rosella, Frederick M., Zelenor, Willie, Annie D. and Prestern. Dr. Pool is a Democrat.
