    Thanks for sharing everyone, always fascinating to see.

    Here's a google map where I plot the birth locations of my maternal grandmother's ancestry (so represents roughly 25% of my own ancestry). Did this manually, been meaning to do a web app that automates taking birth locations from a gedcom and inserting them like this.

    Where is Daniel Poole from in North Carolina?

    He seems to come from an area close to where my mom side of the family is from...

    My Pool ancestry leads from Texas -> Perry Co., Alabama -> Edgefield Co. and Newberry District South Carolina. There I dead end with a John Pool who served in the American Revolution. For a long time various descendants believed that it lead to a Virginia Pool family that came from England, one of the more common Southern Pool lines. Multiple descendants (and cousins in which a tree paper trail isn't quite known (though suspected) have been Y DNA tested and find they don't match the Pool English line and instead likely lead to a David Poole (I made a mistake, Daniel was my ancestor David's brother) who was from the Languedoc region of France and came over to the Virginia Colony as a winemaker, brought around 1620/1621 by the royal keeper of silk (another Languedoc Frenchman who managed the Royal efforts of creating silk, wine, etc) in an attempt to establish winemaking quite early in Virginia's history. There seems to be at least two different "Pool" lines among the South (Virginia, NC, SC, etc) that are completely unrelated but resided near each other at times.
