References & notes

His service from his Compiled Service Records,1 online from fold3. His wounding at Sharpsburg from Clark.2 Personal details from family genealogists, also as Henry C Poole, and the US Census of 1860 and 1880.

He married Mary Hatley (1843-) in 1866 and they had 3 children by 1876.

He's easily confused with Henry Clay Pool (1846-1912) who was in Battery H of the First Artillery (10th Regiment) 1863-65.
