His other interests included serving as captain of steamboats, including the Pearl Rivers and later the Lake Charles; operating a sawmill at Hillsdale in Pearl River County (Mississippi) in 1893; and maintaining a large truck and fruit farm near Tampico, Mexico, in 1895. June Poitevent spent his retirement years in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
The eldest son of Schuyler and Thomasia , Junius, called June, worked in his father's sawmill until 1868. It is believed that he served as a midshipman in the Confederate Navy during the Civil War.
