Stories about John W Poindexter

Biographical Sketch

    4th Corporal John W. Poindexter was born in Georgia ca. 1845.

    In 1860, he was living in the residence of Harriet L. Poindexter (relationship unknown) and an 8 year old orphan named Lilla Goldwire near Mount Pleasant, Gadsden County, Florida.

    Harriet was quite well off, owning real estate in the value of $5,000 and a personal wealth of some $14,000.  Both John and Lilla attended school within the 12 months preceding the census.

    John enlisted in Davidson’s Company on March 15th, 1862 at Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida and was appointed as 4th Corporal.  He was present with the company from his enlistment until June 4th, 1863; he was promoted to 4th Sergeant on July 14th, 1862.

    He was discharged from service almost a year later on June 4th, 1863 by substitution of James Sweeny.
