View Full Version : John Poole - a problem

11-09-14, 11:19
I have two copies of this photo, acquired when my Aunt (Dad's sister) died.
One is inscribed on the back "Grandmother's uncle from Dumfries"
One is inscribed on the back "Great-uncle John Poole"
My guess is that the photo is probably 1840s, but the only person who fits the second inscription has no obvious connection with Dumfries. I do know that there were/are a lot of Pooles in Annan - just a few miles away.
This may jog someone's memory, or someone else may have a copy.
