June and May Poitevent's only son, Schuyler, was educated at Tulane University and the University of Virginia at Charlottesville. While attending the latter, he met Thomasia Overton Hancock (1879-1964) of "Ellerslie" in nearby Albemarle County. They married in 1906 and moved to Tampico, where they raised cattle, fruit, and vegetables on the Poitevents' ranch until the Mexican Revolution forced them to abandon their interests and leave the country. In 1914 they settled in Ocean Springs with their only child, Schuyler, junior (1911-1978). The younger Schuyler earned a law degree at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville. He practiced law in Ocean Springs with his wife, Virginia Margaret Favre (1912-1990) of Gulfport, whom he married in 1941.
