Hello I have just joined,and are hopeing that someone out there will hold the key to my Grandfather, who seemed to have done a runner when my mother was a few months old and was never seen again.I have never found a birth or a death certificate for him. His name is Thomas Fredrick Pierpoint (known as Fred) He may have been born in South Africa. His Father was Thomas Caldwell Pierpoint. I have found him on Ellis Island list and on census 1901 and 1911 He was married before and i have her name but dont realy know where to go from there. If anyone has his name in there family tree i would love to hear from you Thanks Sue.
