    • Robin Poor sworn into the Militia as a Lieutenant Oct 1763

      May 1764 Robin served on grand Jury
      From Virginia Gazette 1780 Aug 16,1780 Vol 4 page 138 local notice. “Robert Poore advertises a bull taken up on Beaverdam in Goochland CountySworn into the Militia as a Lieutenant Oct. 1763 Goochland Va.From Virginia Gazette 1780 Aug 16,1780 Vol 4 page 138 local notice. “Robert Poore advertises a bull taken up on Beaverdam in Goochland CountySworn into the Militia as a Lieutenant Oct. 1763 Goochland Va.
      He contributed to the revolutionary War effort with goods & sundries to the STate Militia and Continental Line. Oats and cattle.
      He served as a processioner of land boundaries.
      elected as a Vestryman for St. James Parish, Goochland virginia 28 Mar 1785

      Old warriors, red and white, retired after the war to their home farms. At Goochland County, Virginia, Abraham Poore died in 1886 at age 65. His 10 children would all migrate westward to new regions. His brother, Thomas Poore, died two years later in 1788 at age 67. His 7 children also moved west. Witnessing his will at Goochland were Thomas Poor and David Powers. The middle brother, Robert Poore, born in 1723, lived the longest. He lived in Goochland County and was married to Judith Walker. He died in 1797 at the age of 74; as for children, I assume that there were many, but I do not know who they were.  We should keep his children in mind, for the name of another Robert Poore springs up later on. It would be a supposition that he had a son named Robert. His brother Abraham also had a son with that name and all seem to have migrated to Woodford County, Kentucky.
       
      Perhaps one of Robert Poore’s sons became the father of Solomon Poore (1797-), born in Botetourt County. Solomon married Elizabeth Wood in 1833 when he was 35 years old. Perhaps she was his second wife. They had 5 known children: Sarah Ann Virginia Poore (1834-1909), James Poore (1839-), George Poore (1841-), Russia Poore (1847-) and Sally Poore (1848-). Our cousin Mary Genotti-Collins descends from Solomon Poore
