Seeking information on the Pooler family. Specifically Harvey G POOLER. I find a Ruben POOLER from
Locke and Reuben goes to OH around the same time a group of Poolers are making their way to Wisconsin via OH. I don't know for sure that Harvey is from Locke. The Poolers show up in several counties in Central NY. Harvey would have been born sometime around 1810-1812. I don't believe that Harvey is the same person as Gaylord of Herkimer County.
