200. William Green POINDEXTER222 died in 1819 in Goochland County, Virginia.77
William was a judge. He married Jane Quarles. They have seven children listed in the Poindexter book. One of these - a Sarah "Sally" Poindexter is said in the book to have married a Thomas Johnson, 1803, Louisa Co. Such a marriage record does exist but it cannot be their daughter. Their daughter may well have married another Johnson, a Thomas William Johnson, about 1825. It's obvious that there were two couples of similar name.
I cannot identify the following Sarah Bowles. John, Knight, and Bartlett are usually seen as brothers, and Charles Knight Bowles, a son of John, but their father is not consistent in online databases. A Susannah Bowles married William Hughes, 10 Apr 1775 or 79, St. James Northam, Goochland Co, VA, according to The Douglas Register. They may have had a son of the same name. J. Haden is undoubtedly the same Joseph Haden who witnessed the Will of Knight Bowles. William G. Poindexter would be William Green Poindexter, son of Rev. John Poindexter.

The Poindexters book show that the daughter of William Green & Jane Quarles Poindexter married a Thomas Johnson - but they have the marriage date all wrong. There were two Thomas Johnsons that married Sarah Poindexters, this one would be the younger.
