Elizabeth Pledge Poindexter

Goochland County
Virginia, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1816
Surry County
North Carolina, USA

*Born abt 1740. Listed on the DAR Patriot Index #494459. She is listed because she sewed letters to her daughter's petticoats and the daughter went through the lines, delivering letters to proper parties.

*One of Elizabeth's experiences is one that included a future president of the US. From a lad who insisted upon, she one day bought a wild turkey and after the trade was made and he had received the 50 cents he said, "Mrs Poindextere, I like wild turkey and when you cook that turkey, I'd like to eat dinner with yhou." So when the turkey was served, this lad was present and refused all other dishes except the tureky. This lad was Andrew Jackson. [Source: book written by M. Siilver, a great-granddaguhter of Capt. Thomas Poindexter of the Rev. and contributed by Gladys Martin Crawley, a direct descendant of Cap. Thomas Poindexter.]

Daughter of William Pledge b. abt 1700 in Henrico and Elizabeth Donaho, daughter of Cherokee Chief Donaho and Mary Wentworth.

She married Thomas Poindexter (buried at this cem.) on either the 13 or 22 Feb 1760 in Goochland Co., VA; *for their children, see Thomas' gravesite.
