In Reply to: Where did this Poindexter come from? by Kathi Jenkins Trostad of 1638

Dear Kathi,
I am the current President of the Poindexter Descendants Association and a member of our Database Committee. We believe your Albert V. POINDEXTER is possibly a descendant of a family that used the following variations: Poindexter/Pendexter/Pondexter/Pudester which arrived in the Nova Scotia area and migrated down to the New England area. There is a small book that was published about this family. Our Database Committee Chairperson, Doris Ann Butler Lucas is looking for her copy.

In the meantime, you mentioned your mother was the POINDEXTER. Do you have any living POINDEXTER uncles or male cousins that would be willing to participate in our Poindexter DNA project? This would be an excellent way to prove connection to George Poindexter, thereby confirming your link to the Poingdestre Family from the Isle of Jersey.

Go to for information about DNA testing for genealogical research. This site has lots of informative details on genetic testing for genealogical purposes.

Then look up POINDEXTER in the surname index. This will take you to our area and show you some of those that have already completed testing with our group. They are online by the ancestor they descend from.

By doing the genetic testing through our group, those participating will automatically receive a reduced rate for the test they select. To distinquish between our close lines, participates need to use at least a 37 marker test.

We have three totally seperate lines from our original George which demostrate our positive genetic ties. We are hoping the more advanced tests, that were released just this past summer, will help us place our lost lines onto the correct spots within our American family tree.

The genetic testing has also been used to confirm nonrelated members whose lines had clouded documented evidence and stories of possible alternate paternity. It has enabled those families to discover what their actual genetic ties are and start persuing those family lines.

We will keep in touch. Please let us know of any further details you might come across as we all try to place your family in its correct place on our family tree.

Robin Butler Daviet
