Comment: According to an interview with current Bellport Village Trustee, Robert H. Lyons III, Tom Poole was a bayman who lived in the building presently at 187 Old Stump Road. Mr. Lyons believes current homeowner, Mrs. Margaret S. [Meg] Koch, is the granddaughter of Tom Poole and uses the building as a summer home.
