Married Sarah; had children William, Jacob, Henry. One of their sons may have been named Julius Caesar Poindexter. He is placed as a son of George III by the Pettits, but is listed as a son of George II in "Poindexters in America"; his age would not fit in the earlier generation.
Found in an Appendices to the Vestry Book of St. Peter's Parish is a letter to London, dated 7 Feb 1725/26, in which one of the complaints reads as follows,
The only brother of Jacob whose wife is not otherwise named was his brother George. There is a death recorded in the Parish records of a George Poindexter who died 12 Mar 1716. If Jacob had been living with his brother's widow for seven years, since about 1719, it would appear that his brother George died at an early age.
Records of St. Peter's Parish show that in 1726, Jacob Poindexter had been cohabiting with his brother's widow since 1718-1719. Only one male Poindexter's death has been recorded near this time - that of George who died in 1716. A Mrs. Sarah Poindexter named a child Julius Caesar in 1719 and received mysterious services for a year afterward. Evidently Sarah was the 3rd George's widow; Julius Caesar an illegitmate child, likely a child of Jacob. Either Jacob and Sarah married or were accepted as common law man and wife, as Henry was shown born to Jacob AND Sarah in 1726.
Jacob POINDEXTER and Sarah [POINDEXTER] had the following children:
