Fifth Generation

23. Ann Radford POINDEXTER23 was born on 18 December 1760 in Goochland County, Virginia.34 She was baptized on 31 January 1761 in Goochland County, Virginia.27 She died on 31 July 1835 at the age of 74 in North Carolina.23

Ann is said to have hidden notes in her petticoats from her mother concerning the British troops and taken them across enemy lines. Her mother was recognized as a DAR Patriot. However, actual proof of these episodes has long since been lost and no one can join DAR on Elizabeth Pledge Poindexter without representing new proof.

Ann Radford POINDEXTER and Daniel SCOTT were married on 13 February 1780 in North Carolina.21,34 Daniel SCOTT35,36, son of Daniel SCOTT and Anna RANDOLPH, was born in 1756.35 He died on 3 July 1824 at the age of 68.35

Veteran of the Revolution. Enlisted in Jan of 1777 in Powhatan Co, VA in Capt Baytop's Co., Col. William Heth's Virginia Regiment. After serving a year, he enlisted for three years and was in the Battle of Monmouth and paid at Valley Forge. He saw service in Capt Charles Fleming's Co of the 7th Virginia Regt. He was granted a soldier's pension in 1819, Surry Co NC.

27 Nov 1790, Daniel Scott purchased 640 acres on the Old Sycamore Ford Road, which was the main road between Bethania and Wilkesboro NC. He bought the land from his father-in-law, Thomas Poindexter and was the tract located in the east bend of the Yadkin River and granted to Thomas Poindexter by the State of North Carolina, 13 Oct 1783. Their home was called the "Red house". Apparently it was painted red and the original builder's name was Redd and he had built gun ports in the wall. The house was used as a refuge during Indian raids. The river bottoms were subject to flooding and the road was relocated.

Additional information about the Redd House came from the Poindexter message board.
Posted 14 Jan 2011 by Alton Hill:
I have heard of the "REDD House", which was not named after it's color "Red", but for the person who initially built and lived in the house. It was then the home of Captain Daniel Scott, who married one of Captain Thomas Poindexter and Elizabeth "Betty" Pledge Poindexter's daughters, Ann Radford Poindexter. Captain Daniel Scott was also an acclaimed officer in the American Revolution.
The "Redd House" sat on the opposite end of the Yadkin River, from where the Tavern was located, even farther northeast than Cpt.Thomas' house. Daniel Scott prided himself with having the largest number of fish traps of anyone whose house was along the Yadkin River, so he was buried down from his house to the banks of the Yadkin River, "so he could watch over his fish traps", his wife Ann Radford Poindexter proclaimed.

In the pension records, on 13 Feb 1822, living in Daniel's home were Anny about age 60 and a daughter Melinda, age 12. All the other children had left home and were self-supporting.

Through the years Daniel & Ann sold some of their property - the majority of it to her brother Robert Alexander Poindexter. They were buried near the Red House.

Ann Radford POINDEXTER and Daniel SCOTT had the following children:

Ann Radford "Nancy" SCOTT39 was born on 18 February 1805 in Surry County, North Carolina. She was born on 18 February 1805 in Yadkin County, North Carolina. She died in 1867 at the age of 62 in Surry County, North Carolina.

The Poindexter book has given this Ann Scott the marriages that seem to have belonged to the Ann Scott, daughter of Leonard & Nancy Butts Martin Scott.

The Poindexter book, p.357, offers some confusion about the parentage and marriages of Ann Radford Scott. It does, in fact, give marriage dates only a month apart. The North Carolina Marriage Bonds database at has no date for either marriage. But they are listed, both in Stokes Co. The first is Bennit Apperson to Nancy Scott, William Vest, bondsman. Next is Samuel Hauser to Nancy Apperson, F. P. Pettitt, bondsman. That alone would leave little doubt as to her maiden name, Scott, nor to the fact that she remarried as a young widow. Both Vests and Pettitts are otherwise intermarried with the Poindexter family. A marriage index CD for North Carolina, lists a marriage for Bennit Apperson and Nancy Scott in Stokes Co, 30 Oct 1820, not 1824. This date works well with the birth of their son William Pearson Apperson, 5 Sep 1821. Certainly the marriage to Hauser took place at the later date.

William Pearson Apperson married Mary Katherine Edwards.

Hauser children included [I believe this list is incomplete, see census]:
Margaret Elizabeth, b. 17 Apr 1827, married Richard E. Marion.
Solomon Wiley Hauser, b. 27 Jun 1833, married Jane Louiza Poindexter, daughter of Denson A. and Sarah Jones. Solomon Said to have married 3 times - the 3rd time to Martha M. Scott who had first married a Wall. They were cousins, too.
Caroline Hauser, died young
Thomas Hauser, b. 1825 [1835?], married Nancy Ann Lucinda Sprinkle
Adam Leonard Hauser, b. ca 1839, died 1863 at Chancellorsville
Mary A. Milner "Polly" Hauser was born 1840, married Isaac Columbus "Lum" Poindexter
