USGS Name System is at http://mapping.usgs.gov/www/gnis/gnisform.simple.ht
The GEONet Names Server http://126.96.36.199/gns/html/index.html will
search the whole world, but is not as complete.
} For a thoroughgoing look at ALL US places with the element "Pointe" (or
} with any element at all for that matter), look at the Geog Names Info
} System from USGS. I believe it is available on their website, though I
} have not tried to use it there myself. But it is an absolutely
} comprehensive, authoritative, and regularly updated repository of all
} placenames, populated places (some 120,000!) and other -- more than a
} million total. It is a marvel.
