I looked up the following for you. I think Wiley A Poindexter is Walter's father and that Wiley's father is William POINDEXTER.

My advice: get death certificates for CLEORA M POINDEXTER. It will tell you her Maiden Name. You may also want Wiley A Poindexter's death certificate. Their death information is below.

The various census information is not entirely accurate. Transcription errors could have occurred along the way. The mother of Wiley A. Poindexter was Adeline Renegar. Renneger is a misspelling. Adda and Addie are apparently nicknames. Note that William Henry Poindexter, the younger brother of Wiley, is 8 MONTHS old in the 1880 census, which matches his birthdate of 10/11/1879. He was my grandfather.

I make errors too. The gravestone for Adeline Renigar Poindexter has it spelled RENIGAR. The stone is engraved William Wiley Poindexter 3/2/1849- 3/25/1928. Adeline Renigar 2/14/1854- 3/3/1923. The gravesite is at Enon Baptist Church, East Bend NC. The parents of Adeline Renigar are also buried there. Their names escape me at the moment.

I met Wiley A. Poindexter for certain about 1947 and again perhaps about 1956. One of his nieces (my aunt) told me this week that she remembered that his middle initial A. was for Archibald.

Dear Arron,
Walter Edwin Poindexter served as the President of the Poindexter Descendants Association (PDA) in the late 1980's, early 1990's. I am the currently President of that association. I knew your father, as did both my brother and sister.

We have a complete lineage on your father going back to his emigrant Poindexter ancestor. We would love to share details with you and bring you along with the rest of descendants forward. Please contact me at my e-mail address listed here or our database coordinator Doris Ann Butler Lucas at the e-mail listed for her on the PDA website located at www.poindexterfamily.org

Dear Michael,

I am the current president of the Poindexter Descendants Association (PDA). Like your cousin, Arron, we would love to speak with you also.

We actually have you listed in our database. I do not know where all your family information came from, but our database coordinator, Doris Ann Butler Lucas would.

It is very possibly your family's information was given to us by Arron's grandfather, Walter, who was a president of our association some time ago. We just celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the Poindexter Family Reunion in North Carolina this year.

To learn more about PDA go to www.poindexterfamily.org. We would love to discuss with you your family's lineage coming foward. Just e-mail me or Doris Ann Butler Lucas. Her e-mail address is listed on the PDA website.

Also if you have any genealogy questions going back, we take our lineage even beyond our mutual emigrant ancestor, to the early 13th century on the Isle of Jersey. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

I have emailed Doris, and am waiting for a reply.Im very happy to have found some information on walter very suddenly. I never met my grandfather, nor did my my mother. Never seen any pics, or any personal information of walter. We tried requesting records, and were told they were destroyed. I will try to join the PDA but at the moment, I really cant afford it, as money is just too strapped. But i am glad for the bts of info i have recieved.!
