census and marriage records, and court documents, as well as accounts of the Poinsetts in coastal and river steamboating. I also am grateful to Edgar R. Taylor, Jr., of Pittsburgh, PA, for additional information on Uriah Poinsett's daughter's family and his wife, Catherine, in FL. Additionally, Ms. Taft has pointed out that there is a Lake Poinsett in the head waters of the St. Johns River. (See Mueller, 1986, for the history of steamboating and the information on Poinsetts.)

Ms. Taft also provided the following information, which presently I am unable to fit into these two items into the genealogy:

1) In the 1870 census there is a Thomas Poinsett, age 21, born in FL, residing at Key West, Monroe Co, FL. (In the same residence is a Negro laundress, Teresa Darley, age 80, and Dora Franklin, white, age 63 and born in FL.) It seems likely that he was a son of Uriah Poinsett, from Uriah's second marriage (Uriah and Catherine DeWees married in 1841; Thomas was born in 1849; Uriah seems to have died about 1849).

2) An infant of "Mrs. Poinsett" died in 1888 during the Yellow Fever epidemic in Jacksonville.
