Ian Fielding Pierce is my Grandfather...I can tell you he was badly injured as a Captain  ....he and his buddy were both on a motorcycle at night on railroad tracks and ran smack into one of those old timey things that you pump up and down  on the tracks,he had to bow out and so he came back to the states and married my Grandmother Ellen....He was a very wonderful kind man.....Melinda Carr,Vero Beach,Florida......I just happened upon this site and punched in his name......Good Luck!

Hi Anna, Ian G F Pierce appears on 13 July 1915 as a visitor in the "Alticry Book of Weights" which I'm currently analysing. The Wrights of Alticry had South American (Uruguay/Argentina)  connections and might be a link to some of your research. Maybe they met on a ship crossing the Atlantic?
Ellen Moore Pierce visits with Ian Pierce in 1964.
