POOL, J. P.
J. P. Pool, of the law firm of Dupree & Pool, of Victoria, has been prominently identified with the bar of this city since 1891 and is one of the influential members of the Democratic party in this part of the state. He served as secretary of the senate during the Twenty-fourth, Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh sessions, finally resigning. He was elected a member of the Thirtieth legislature. In 1909 he was appointed and is now filling the office of county judge of Victoria County, having succeeded T. R. Wood, who had resigned.
Judge Pool was born in Milam County, Texas, near Cameron, July 7, 1870. His father, James Pool, a native of Mississippi, who came to Milam County when a boy, was farmer and carpenter, and died in 1870. The mother, who is still living, is Fannie (McKinney) Pool, a native of Alabama.
When a boy he attended the common schools of Milam County, and then continued his education in Baylor University and in the law department of the University of Texas. In 1891 he was admitted to the bar, having just arrived at his majority, and located for practice in Victoria. He practiced alone until 1898, when he became the partner of Judge J. L. Dupree, and the two now conduct a large general practice.
Judge Pool is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, the A. O. U. W., and of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. He married, in April, 1893, Miss Jessie Dupree, daughter of Franklin Dupree, of Montgomery county, Texas. They have two children, Clydine and J. P., Jr., the older thirteen and the younger ten.
