Dr Harold Gordon De Poyster comes from a long line of Individuals who helped shape this country and Kentucky itself.
Arimistead Churchill Jr, founder of Churchill Downs was the brother of Lucy (Churchill) Gordon the sixth Great grandmother of Gordon's and the purported name stake of Gordon's Dearly departed Mother Lucille (Gordon) De Poyster. Thus, it can be easily said that Gordon's love of horses was in his blood.
Gordon's fifth Great Grandmother, Isabella (Gordon) Mercer was married to Brigadier General Hugh Mercer of the Continental Army, close friend of George Washington and personal Physician to Mary Washington. General Mercer died as the result of wounds he received at the Battle of Princeton refusing quarter after his horse was shot out from beneath him. General Mercer is the third great Grandfather of General George Patton of World War Two fame making he and Gordon fourth cousin once removed.
After General Mercer's death, a large group of Baptist led by the Reverend Lewis Craig fled Virginia in an exodus known as the Traveling Church. They were fleeing persecution from the Virginia Episcopal's still loyal to the church of England. They came trough the Wilderness trail into an area later named after their fallen Patriarch, Mercer County Kentucky. Gordon's Fifth Great Grandfather, Captain John Gordon fought and died in the Battle of Blue licks, the last battle of the American revolution fought near Maysville, Kentucky along side Colonel Daniel Boone.
I knew my Second Cousin as a Kind, Humble, Giant of a man who I aspired to be like and whose Mother was like an Angel who helped me be the Physician I am today.
Dear Lamar, you are in my prayers. I have a Son due any time whose name will be Samuel Elijah Gordon. He will know what a great man Gordon De Poyster was. God Bless to all.

When I was a kid I remember going into his mom and dads store. He and Lamar were great friends to my mom. Gordon and I hit it off because we both had a passion for collecting knives and guns. I have fond memories of our trades. In the last 20 years I moved away and regret not staying in touch. Rest easy Gordon you were a true gentleman!
