Married Missouri Ann Baker dau of John Baker on 26 Nov 1866, Dade Co MO. She was born 31 Dec 1850, Yalobusha Co MS and d. 22 Feb 1930 in Broken Arrow, OK.
Found another date for the marriage - 17 Jan 1867 by Henry Smith, J.P. - this is from MARRIAGE RECORDS FOR DADE CO, BOOKS A&B 1863-1872.

1870 Dade Co MO, South Twp, p.116a, Dwelling 156. Listed as "Zebedee" Poindexter age 22, but the family is Zadock's. Miss. A. [Missouri] age 19 b. Mississippi; Zachariah age 2, Sarah J. age 6/12, born in February.

1880 Dade Co MO, South Twp, p.158C Zadock Poindexter age 33, b. MO, parents b. KY; Missouri A. age 29, b. MS. Zachary W. age 12, Sarah J. age 10, and Cordia L. age 1.

There is also said to be a child, Virgil Wright Poindexter born in 1875; he must have died as a young child.

The date of death for Zadock given as 8 Feb 1877 in the Poindexter book is incorrect. Zadock is in the 1880 Census in Dade Co MO, age 33 [born 1847] and wife Missouri, age 29 [born in Mississippi].
A database online <> gives his death as 18 Feb 1887 in either Fulton or Nevada Co. MO. Missouri subsequently married Albert Keener - they apparently moved to Indian Territory.

Son William A. Poindexter gave his birth as 1847, death as 1881 in his application to the Eastern Cherokee Rolls, Case #7282

Missouri Baker's family:

Published in the OZAR KIN Vol. XV, No. 2 - Summer 1993 - Pages 45 and 46
Tennessee born Martha McCord Hastings, called "Mattie" by her family, married Methodist minister Isham Bailey in 1834. They settled in Yalobusha County, Mississippi (they called it "yellowbush") where their five children were born: Sarah, Delpha, Franklin, Mary and Isa . Rev. Bailey died in July 1845, three months before Martha gave birth to their daughter Isa.

John Baker married in Alabama in 1837 Nancy Margaret Isbell, a Tennessee girl. They migrated to Chickasaw County, Mississippi where their six children were born: William, Zachariah, John, Sarah Abigail, Margaret and Louisa. Soon after baby Louisa's birth Margaret Baker died (December 1846).

John Baker and Martha Bailey did what was necessary to survive in a frontier society -- they remarried very quickly. A prolonged time of mourning for their deceased mates was a luxury they could not afford. Family legend is that Martha weaned little daughter Isa Bailey so she could nurse newly orphaned Louisa Baker.

The first child of the new union was born in 1848, a son named Isham, and a new daughter, Missouri Ann, arrived in 1850. Her name commemorated the familys move to Missouri, and some family members say that she was born in a covered wagon on the way.......

Zedock Wright POINDEXTER and Missouri Ann BAKER were married on 26 November 1866. Missouri Ann BAKER372 was born on 31 December 1850 in Yalobusha County, Mississippi.372 She died on 22 February 1930 at the age of 79 in Broken Arrow, Tulsa County, Oklahoma.

Buried Park Grove Cemetery, Broken Arrow, Tulsa, OK.

Zedock Wright POINDEXTER and Missouri Ann BAKER had the following children:



Zachariah William POINDEXTER372 was born on 3 December 1867 in Dade County, Missouri. He died on 15 April 1921 at the age of 53 in Spavinaw, Mayes County, Oklahoma.



Sarah Jane POINDEXTER372 was born on 20 February 1870 in Dade County, Missouri. She died on 22 October 1955 at the age of 85 in Claremore, Rogers County, Oklahoma.

Sallie's second husband, William Pollan, was her first cousin. She reported he died of typhoid soon after their marriage. Sallie's father was listed as "Zac" Poindexter on the Cherokee Rolls. Her mother's name too light to be read, but it did begin with an "M". Sallie never declared in anyway that she had Indian blood in the documents of John Allison - her third husband, John R. Allison, was enrolled as 1/8 Cherokee; his six children by his first wife and Sabra and Edgar as children of Sallie as 1/16. Sallie was originally enrolled as "adopted" Cherokee as being intermarried, but a Supreme Court decision in 1906 changed the status of those whites married to Cherokee and she was rejected.

She may have been part of an attempt to enroll on the Cherokee rolls in 1896 as her name is in the index with case #5565. The cases are on Ancestry, but Folder 5565 is missing - both the previous and succeeding files are there. Others in the group included her brother Zachariah W. Poindexter and sister Cordia Hunt., as well as cousins, the children of Mary Jane Poindexter and Robert J. Pollan/



Virgil Wright POINDEXTER373 was born on 5 July 1875 in Dade County, Missouri. He died before 1880 at the age of 5 in Dade County, Missouri.



Cordia Lillian POINDEXTER372 was born on 11 March 1879 in Dade County, Missouri. She died on 22 April 1905 at the age of 26 in Oklahoma.

Married Gideon F. Hunt.
