I am attempting find out what happened to my Grandmother, Mary Atkinson Young (nee: Turner), born about 1903 in Port Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Scotland. She emmigrated with her family to Canada in July 1910 and they settled in Collingwood, Ontario. She married George Henry Young (b. Sep 27, 1899 in Bethnal Green, London, England) on March 15, 1922 in Collingwood, Simcoe County, Ontario Canada. They had thee children together, George, Isobel and William.
Her parents were John A. Turner (b. 1860 England) and Isabella Constable Crawford (b. 1861 Renfrew, Scotland).
Some time in early 1928 she disappeared from their home in Collingwood, after possibly placing all three children in a closet, and had never been heard from since.
Anyone with any information that may help solve this mystery would be appreciated.

Thomas & wife Charlotte with sons Frederick & Samuel are in 1841 England Census in Birmingham, Warwickshire. Charlotte seems to disappear after that; Thomas probably reappeared in 1881 in London, lodging with non-family but still recorded as being married; Frederick & his family emigrated to New Zealand in 1870 and I am interested in making contact with descendants of Samuel for the purpose of comparing notes on hopefully common ancestry. Frederick is my great-grandfather.
