I thought I'd post to see if anyone had insights for me --
Frank Joseph Pierpoint was my great-grandfather; however I have very little information about him or his family, as my Grandfather never knew him. As a child he was told that his father died before he was born, but I'm not sure if thats true.
Several years ago (in the pre-internet days!) my grandfather tried to contact other Pierpoints in Canada in the hopes that he could find some information about his father; however the only thing he was able to find was his marriage certificate!
From that I know that Frank Joseph Pierpoint was born in 1898 in Ireland, and his parents were Frances Pierpoint and Emma Hutchinson. In 1919 he married Laura May Shier in Toronto, Canada. My grandfather was born in September 1921, so his father may have died in early 1921.
If you have any insights or suggestions, either about Frank Joseph or his parents, I'd appreciate it!
