I'd like to address the geologist who dose'nt want my gg/pa Benjamin Speer Poindexter he to be born of Sarah Gist & William Micaja Poindexter...insists that he,his brother & several other poindexters lied when they went to the daws rolls & furthermore, he & his mom- Sarah Gist prob never saw an indian...she then smears him more by saying his mother waswas someone else....I know you didn't live those days....don't know where you get all your negative info,but if you worked half as hard on Sarah Gist,maybe we solve mysteries about her....unless you have some pre/conceived notion...pardon my brash,but she was just as brash...Sarah is 4 gens from me & I'd like to know more about her....much obliged.....

See this genealogy report  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~katy/wright/b361.html which may answer your question, and explain why the application to be put on the Cherokee rolls, by the descendants of Benjamin and Archy was denied. They apparently used Mary's name in error, believing she was the boys mother.

Sara or Shara Gist's, my G Great-Grandmother, father is Henry D Gist and Mother is Anne Pace...Sara had 2 sons my Great-Grandfather Benjamin Speer Poindexter and Archibald Thomas Poindexter...they believed Mary Glidewell was their mother since Sara died shortly after the birth of Arch and they were very young.  Cage (William Mijach) Poindexter was married 5 times...
