I'm trying to research the origins of our unusual surname. If you are a Poar, and you have any information please feel free to email me. Thanks.

I have a Poar in my family. The real name is Joseph Lemual Poore. In the 1880 or 1890 census I believe he is listed as Lemuel Poar. He was born in Hickman, TN. Maybe your unusual surname is like mine. A transcription error in the census's.
