Before Wake Forest, I was in local law enforcement for 10 years, thus having a total of 35 Years, just in law enforcement.

Om mitt bibliotekThis year (2008), I set up my own publishing company, Al Hill's Desktop Home Publishing Company, SAN 857-2151, 735 Lacock Avenue, Rural Hall, NC 27045-9742. On June 2, 2008, I authored my first family history, genealogy book, titled: "The Historic Home of George Poindexter (Poingdestre), "Criss Cross", A Photo Book And History, Before And After".

This is a photo, family history book about the first immigrant of the Poindexter (Poingdestre) family, George Poindexter (Poingdestre), and his plantation home, Criss Cross, earlier known as Christ Cross, by the cross design. George Poindexter came to America from the Isle of Jersey, one of the British Channel Islands, off the coast of Normandy, France, and first settled in Middle Plantation, Virginia, now known as Williamsburg, in the 1650's. In 1680, he moved to New Kent, County, Virginia; in 1685, he and his wife, Susannah, began to build their plantation, Criss Cross, which was completed in 1690. Following George’s death in 1691, Susannah continued to live there until her death two years later. Then, their son, George II, continued to reside there. Criss Cross, left the Poindexter family in 1830, and has been out of the family since. By the 1950’s, it was almost completely deteriorated, when, in 1953, Ed and Gayla Harrison, saw the home, fell in love with it, realized its potential, and made a financial/time commitment to restore this home. In 1972, the Harrison’s made application to the U.S. Department of Interior to have Criss Cross placed on the Register of Historic Homes in America, and in 1973, the home was placed on the Register, and has been since that time. This book features old and new photos, as well as copies of original documents associated with this home, history, restoration and status today.
