it is starting to look that way... I came across the marriage in Michigan awhile ago, but didn't want to believe it could be the same Wm Pointon. My link to his parents, John and Arabella, hinges on an uncertain marriage in Willenhall, Staff between Wm and Selina - her maiden name being in question - one of her sons uses Selina Mason as her maiden name on his licence, but another son uses Selina Marston. I can find the marriage of Pointon/Marston, not the marriage of Pointon, Mason. Selina's maiden name would not be on her death certificate, and I can not untangle the names .... yet

Hi
Marston and Mason, it sounds like it could be the same Selina, with different versions her name.
The marriage (image of) is on findmypast

Michigan, Death Records on ancestry says that William C Pointon died 16 March 1900 Solon, Kent, Michigan. Age 58. But I don't have access to the full record at the moment.

Just to confirm on StaffordshireBMD, there is a birth of a William Pointon in Tunstall in 1841 mmm Hill.  No middle name

I think though that his parents were Elizabeth and Thomas. The only way to be certain would be to get  that certificate.

yes I think his parents are John and Arabella. His birth is not as mysterious as his death in Hull. Are there many missing death records for the time period around 1890?

On Freereg there is a marriage for John Pointon and Arrabella Hill on 13 May 1837 at At Margaret's Church, Wolstanton
