Ernest was the son of Thomas Francis Poncia and his wife Selina Rosetta (Allen) Poncia.
Ernest was listed in the Birmingham Pub Blacklist. This is a fascinating source I came across today at Ancestry.com, which includes photos and great detail on those who were on a "do not serve" list.
This is for now the last record I have for Ernest. I wonder, did he move on to another town that would serve him alcohol? Did he die homeless?
