June Poitevent engaged in shipping on the Pearl River in Mississippi and on the Trinity River in Texas, and he owned farms in both states, as well as a Victorian Italianate home on the Bay of Biloxi which was called the "Bay Home" and a home at Palmetto, Florida, near Tampa. 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. In 1866 he married May Eleanor Staples (1847-1932) of New Orleans. They became the parents of three: Cora May (1868-?), Vera (1874-1897), and Schuyler (1875-1936).
