Also a James Pindarvis was listed in NEWNANSVILLE PRECINCT of Alachua county as being one of the first voters in Florida, at the 1845 election.

To qualify to vote at this time, you had to be over 21, own land, be a white male, be a citizen of the US, had lived in Alucha (or place of residence) for at least 6 months, had lived in Florida for at least 2 years.

His name is also on a lot of town deeds, either of him buying, or assisting in the selling of other peoples land, as an attorney to them.
