How do I pronounce this surname?

I have just found out that my husband's several grt. grandparents are Robert POAGE and Elizabeth PRESTON and we have no idea how to pronounce this surname.
It took us 30 years to find his maternal ancestry so these names are all new to us. His mother knew nothing of her father's side of the family.
After searching the census' again just this last week I found the missing link.
His link is through the KELLY line which includes the surnames of WOODS, DUBOSE, WALLACE, DOUGLASS, SINCLAIR(St.Clair), CAMPBELL and several others and of course POAGE.

I am trying to get this information together so that I can give it to his remaining brothers and sisters for Christmas.
I would like to be able to tell them this name and pronounce it correctly.
Thank you for the help.
