Looking for information on my gg-grandfather William Poindexter. He is the father of my g-grandmother Rebecca Davis Poindexter Harrision. My records show he was born in Arkansas, county unknown. I need to know where he went and/or was living after he divorced my grandmother and when and where he died. I don't have a dob for William, however he was living in Washington Arkansas in 1902. I'd appreciate any information and/or leads.

Do a search for him at the Latter Day Saints site. I kept running into African American William Poindexters when I was searching for my William. I was searching in Virginia.

Hello -
I am glad I am not the only African American looking for Poindexters. Did William have any children? Check Augusta Co. Virginia census. There was a William (B: 1827) who was married to Susan (B: 1830) in the 1880 and 1910 census. Also check Harris Co, TX. His son Jordan (B: 1857)was in the 1910 census there. If you have any Virignia info, maybe we can exchange.

Thanks for the information. Yes, my William did have children, not sure how many. I don't know if he was married before he married my grandmother Classie Harrison. I don't have much of anything to go on right now, but I'll consider your info. If I find anything, I'll be sure to email you. .


thx!
