Will Abstract of Thomas McCool (1797-1867): Warrick County, Indiana

Located this will abstract record of Corinne's maternal 5th-great grandfather, Thomas McCOOL, in Warrick County, Indiana on my recent trip.

Thomas McCool       April 11, 1867    April 23, 1869   page 82-83

Heirs: John P. McCool, Jacob B. McCool, Margaret Hargrave.  Witnesses: W.S. Harpole and A.J. Milller

Source: Abstracts Warrick County, Indiana, Will Book I 1831-1859 Will Book 2 Feb. 1860-June 1885, Capt. Jacob Warrick Chapter, DAR, 1992, p. 8

Known children of Thomas are Jacob B., Nancy Ann, Margaret and John P.  Thomas had two wives, Martha "Patsey" SCALES (1807-1825) and Catherine ________.  At this point I've not identified for sure which wife was the mother of the children, though I'm leaning towards Martha.

Thomas was born December 20, 1797 in Virginia and died May 14, 1867 in Boonville, Warrick County, Indiana.  Prior to coming to Indiana, the family lived in Warren County, Kentucky.  Thomas is buried in the Harpole Cemetery, Boonville, Warrick County, Indiana.  Note the Harpole name as a witness, there may be a family connection.   Much research needs to be done on this line.

Will be writing letter today requesting a copy of his will record from Warrick County.
