Thomas G. Poinsett, s/o Thomas G. Poinsett & Rosina Whorrell, to Martha Clubb, widow and d/o John Bond & Mary Grigly both of Bollinger Co.” (His name should have been Thomas F. and his mother's maiden name is misspelled.) This was a civil ceremony and not Catholic. Martha was the widow of James Clubb, by whom she had a daughter. (One of Thomas's pension records states the daughter's name was “Alase Club” and she was 1 year old when Martha and Thomas were married; if the Martha Poinsett" (age 29) in the 1870 census for Bollinger Co is Thomas' wife, her name was Mary and she abt 3 years old when they married; the daughter was "dead a long time", as was Martha, when the document was filed in 1915.) It was an unsatisfactory union; Thomas later stated in his pension application records that he was tricked, for Martha had been injured during the birth of her child and was unable to have any more children. He left her shortly after the marriage.

Thomas wandered widely following the end of his unsuccessful marriage. He did railroad work out of Pittsburgh Landing, TN, was in St. Louis, MO, South Dakota (in 1877), returned to Missouri briefly, worked in Arizona, Arkansas, New Mexico, and Colorado, arriving there in 1881 and remaining for 31 years.

Thomas was affiliated with his brother-in-law, John David Vaughan, the husband of Sarah Louisa Poinsett - 16, in several transactions involving mining claims and real estate in the Breckenridge, CO, area over several years. The following is from the Recorder's office in the Summit Co Court House, Breckenridge:
