    : I was there 20 some years ago but I can't remember the location. GPS coordinates would be nice.

    Many have. BTW it's spelled Poinsettia. Leave out the second "i" and it's oblivious.

    I have never been there personally, but I have GPS coordinates of it.

    The best hint I'll give is it's NW of SR361, and about 5 miles NE of Midway.

    With a little research of USGS maps, you should be able to find it.
