Question Asked: I know this is some kind of Ivy, I do not think its poison is it????

Answer: Jeff, neither of these 2 vines is poison ivy nor have urushiol oil. The one plant (with the white veins) looks like an English Ivy. This is an invasive plant and has some toxic properties which can cause dermatitis in sensitive individuals.
