My great grandmother was Carry or Carrie (most likely Caroline) Powley. Since I've seen a spelling of her last name as Poley, I was wondering if there is any chance that Pooley would be another variation of her last name. I don't have much info as I'm looking myself but I do know that she married my great grandfather Peter Messinger in 1882 and had her first two children there in Houtzdale, PA. I got this information from the 1910 and 1900 census records I found on them in West Virginia where they moved some time after 1886 but before 1889 when their third child was born in WV. I'm told that Carry Powley had two brothers named David and Joe but I have found no details on them or her.
