The News, Frederick, MD, July 6, 1945
PFC. WARNER M. POOLE, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Poole, of Araby church, near Frederick Junction, has been killed in action in the Pacific, the War Department has notified his parents by telegram.
Only recently, it was reported, Mr. and Mrs. Poole were notified that a second son, Staff Sgt. Paul L. Poole, missing in Europe since November, was dead.
A third son, Cpl. Samuel T. Poole, seriously wounded in action in France June 23, has gotten along fairly well. He was twice wounded, once sustaining a head wound.
There is a fourth son, George E., who is in service. Mr. and Mrs. Poole had nine sons and three daughters.
Little information could be learned concerning the reported death of Pfc. Poole, who was about 21 years of age and unmarried. Pfc. Poole had his basic training at Camp Shelby, Miss., where he was with the 31st Division. If he was still with this unit, his death probably occurred in Mindanao. He was in New Guinea for a time. Two other deaths of men in the 31st Division are listed in The News today, both on Mindanao. Pfc. Poole had been in service for several years, prior to which he was employed by the Farmers Cooperative Association plant here.
