      Samuel Poole ( 23 ) was born the 4th child and 3rd son of Levin Poole ( 10 ) and Elisabeth Emerson Poole in Caroline County, Maryland on December 6, 1807.   He married " Britannia Corkran " on October 13, 1836 in Caroline County.   Britannia was born on May 9, 1820 also in Caroline County.   Her parent's names are currently unknown.

      They first show up in the 1850 census ( recorded on September 30, 1850 ) residing on a farm in Caroline County, Maryland.   Samuel ( 23 ) is noted as a 43 year old farmer and " Britannia " is noted as a 30 year old housekeeper raising her children.   Residing with them are their " 6 " oldest children:  Leonard ( Age 12 ) - Ariann ( Age 10 ) - Rebecca ( Age 8 ) - Henry M. ( Age 6 ) - Samuel F. ( Age 3 ) and George W. ( Age 3 months ) .   Also residing with them is Deborah Poole ( Age 5 ) and her relationship is unknown.

      In the 1860 census ( recorded on September 8, 1890 ) they are residing on a farm near Federalsburg, Caroline County, Maryland ( which may be the same farm as 1850 ) .   Samuel ( 23 ) is noted as a 53 year old farmer and " Britannia " is noted as a 40 year old housekeeper raising her children.   Residing with them now are " 8 " of their children:  Leonard ( Age 23 & noted as a farm laborer ) - Ariann ( Age 20 ) - Rebecca ( Age 19 ) - Henry M. ( Age 16 & noted as a farm laborer ) - Samuel F. ( Age 13 ) - George W. ( Age 10 ) - Lydia ( Age 7 ) and Albert ( Age 4 months ) .   Deborah Poole that was noted in the 1850 census is no longer shown residing with them.

      In the 1870 census ( recorded on July 21, 1870 ) they appear to be residing on the same farm near Federalsburg, Caroline County, Maryland.   Samuel ( 23 ) is noted as a 62 year old farmer and " Britannia " is noted as a 50 year old housekeeper raising her children.   Residing with them now are " 7 " of their children:  Rebecca ( Age 26 ) - Henry M. ( Age 26 & noted as a farm laborer ) - George ( Age 21 & noted as a farm laborer ) - Lydia ( Age 16 ) - Albert ( Age 10 ) and William ( Age 6 ) .   Leonard ( 56 ) and Ariann ( 57 ) were both married prior to 1870.   Samuel ( 60 ) wasn't married as of yet but was apparently working on another farm close by.   Leonard ( 56 ) was actually farming the farm next to his parent's farm and had two children before 1870.

      In the 1880 census ( recorded on June 21, 1880 ) they again appear to be residing on the same farm near Federalsburg, Caroline County, Maryland.   Samuel ( 23 ) is noted as a 72 year old farmer and " Britannia " is noted as a 60 year old housekeeper.   Residing with them now are " 3 " of their children:  Rebecca ( Age 38 ) - Albert ( Age 19 & noted as a farm laborer ) and William ( Age 17 & noted as a farm laborer )    Leonard ( 56 ) and Ariann ( 57 ) were both married prior to 1870.   Samuel ( 60 ) wasn't married as of yet but was apparently working on another farm close by.   Leonard ( 56 ) was actually farming the farm next to his parent's farm and had two children before 1870.

      Sadly, most of the " 1890 census " materials were destroyed in a 1921 fire and none of the information for the State's of Maryland or Delaware survived the fire.

      " Britannia " preceded her husband in passing away at the age of 73 July 7, 1893 in Caroline County and was interred in the Hillcrest Cemetery, Federalsburg, Maryland.   Samuel ( 23 ) passed away at the age of 88 on October 20, 1896 also in Caroline County, Maryland and was interred with his wife.   They had " 9 " children together.
