Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 20, 1835
Jefferson County
Alabama, USA
Death: Jun. 30, 1922
Alabama, USA

The 1850 US Census of Cahaba Valley, Jefferson Co. AL enumerated the household of 49 Y/O Mitchell Poole, a farmer born in South Carolina and his 50 Y/O wife, Mary Elizabeth (Gilbert) Pool. Also residing in the household were their children: 21 Y/O Huldah Poole; 17 Y/O Isaac M. Poole; 14 Y/O Elizabeth Poole; 12 Y/O William L. Poole and 9 Y/O John C. Poole.

Eliza Caroline Poole married Robert M. Jones at Cedar Grove, Jefferson Co., AL about 1855.

The 1860 US Census of Townships 16, 17 and 18, St. Clair Co, AL enumerated the household of 32 Y/O Robert M. Jones, a farmer born in South Carolina, and his 23 Y/O wife, Eliza Caroline (Poole) Jones, born in Alabama. Also living in the household were their children: 1 Y/O Issac Jones and 1 month old Eli Jones.

Eliza Caroline Poole Jones Little stated in her 12 Jan 1921 Confederate (CSA) pension application that her father was Mitchell Poole and she married Wilburn King Little about 50 years previously. Since the 1870 US Census of Precinct 3, St. Clair Co., AL enumerated the household of 35 Y/O Wilburn King Little and his widowed 32 Y/O second wife, Eliza Caroline (Poole) Jones Little (1835-1922), it would appear their marriage occurred in the 1869/70 time period. Eliza (Poole) Jones was the widow of Pvt. Robert M. Jones (CSA), who died on 15 Mar 1864 in a Union Prison Camp at Rock Island, Illinois and was buried in the Rock Island Confederate Cemetery, Rock Island Co., Illinois. The children residing in the 1870 household reflect these marriages. They were: 11 Y/O Artelia Jane Little; 10 Y/O William Rufus Little; 8 Y/O Cynthia R. Little (Children of Wilburn King Little and his first wife, Sarah Ann (Godwin) Little who died on 08 Jul 1866). Also living in the household were the children of Eliza (Poole) Jones by her deceased first husband, Robert M. Jones. They were: 11 Y/O Issac M. Jones (b. 5 Oct 1858); 10 Y/O W. Ely Jones; 8 Y/O Mary Elizabeth Jones (b. 27 Apr 1861 and 6 Y/O Martha Jane Jones (b. 14 May 1863).

The 1880 US Census of Branchville, St. Clair Co., AL enumerated the household of 49 Y/O Wilburn K. Little, a farmer, and his 44 Y/O second wife, Eliza Caroline (Poole) Little. Living in the household were the children reflecting their three marriages: 21 Y/O Artelia Jane Little; 19 Y/O William Rufus Little; 18 Y/O Cynthia R. Little; 6 Y/O Florence P. Little; 5 Y/O Annie Lee Little; 2 Y/O Ellen F. Little; 21 Y/O J. Jones; 20 Y/O W. Ely Jones and 18 Y/O Mary Elizabeth Jones.

NOTE: Attached to this memorial is the memorial of Robert "N." Jones indicating he also was the husband of Eliza Caroline Poole. I think this is disproved by the successive appearances of the children of Robert "M" Jones whose names appear in the 1860, 1870 and the 1880 recorded above. Also Eliza Caroline Poole Jones Little stated in her 12 Jan 1921 Confederate (CSA) pension application that she had been married only 2 times.

The 1900 US Census of Bold Springs, Shelby Co., AL enumerated the household of 69 Y/O Wilburn K. Little, a farmer, and his 64 Y/O wife, Elizabeth Caroline Little.

The 1910 US Census of Bold Springs, Shelby Co., AL enumerated the household of 77 Y/O Wilburn K. Little, retired, and his 74 Y/O wife, Elizabeth Caroline Little.

In her 12 Jan 1921 Confederate (CSA) pension application, Eliza Caroline (Poole) Little stated she was living in Leeds, AL in the household of a Robert E. Lee. This was most probably the same 28 Y/O Robert E. Lee, born in 1870, and his 25 Y/O wife, Ann, who were living next door to Wilburn King and Elizabeth Caroline Little in the 1900 US Census of Bold Springs, Shelby Co., AL. In 1920, the same family of 49 Y/O Robert E. Lee, born in 1870, and his 43 Y/O wife, Ann, are enumerated in the 1920 US Census of Leeds, Jefferson Co., AL. I do not know if there was a family connection or just friendship.
