    Notes 
    • Worked for the Great northern Railway all his life was a switch-man in the yards at Hillyard 7 days a week I believed that he started working for railroad at Kettle Falls, Washington an then moved to Hillyard Walter Poole (my dad remembers living in Kettle falls and living close to the river which is quite different then it is now) Tried to be a farmer part time so he always seemed to have a small farm somewhere close to Spokane, He owned a Star roadster which he took the wheels off in the winter time and put it up on blocks till spring. latter in life he would have a Chev Coupe which he tore the back off of it and made a pickup truck out of it. till it quite running and he would get another one.

      I remember seeing him in Hillyard when I was small and he would play the Harmonica and dance a jig in the street (sounds like a musical movie but things were different then really it is hard to believe I also remember he was put in jail quite often and my dad would have to go get him out but no one thought much about it seemed to be a common occurrence in Hillyard at that time he had a friend who was the engineer of the switch engine his name was Chief Campbell (who was the father of Evelyn Campbell Poole wife of Raymond Poole) Th main problem they had was that of getting drunk in the beer parlors in Hillyard and then getting in trouble and go to Jail this was not a real problem because as I said before common occurrence and no one thought much about it. when he was in jail no one seemed to be concerned but when my other Grandpa Burt Hanson was put in jail it was a real tragedy and everyone was excited and grandma cried.and my dad had to get him out as soon as possible because Burt could not spend the nite in Jail. He (Sam Pool) was always referred to as the Old Man He had a large metal bath tub which was him and he would take a bath on the back porch in it the houses did not have a bathroom but I remember the tub was his and no one touched it. Sam and his wife Anna got a divorce and he moved out I do not remember the date but after that he had girl friends and one that I remember real well was named Ruby.
