I'm trying to discover my granduncle, John Edward MacKay. He's a missing link in my almost completed family tree.
Born in Lochinver, Sutherland in August 1887 he emigrated to Canada around 1906 with his father and elder sister. His father William Gunn MacKay died at Port Arthur, Ontario in 1911. His sister married, in 1914, and lived in Brandon, Manitoba until her death in 1954.
John joined the 44th (Manitoba) battalion during the first World War and visited family in England around that time. I have his Attestation Papers and a photo of him in his uniform. He wasn't married at that time. He survived the War, returned to Canada in 1919 and disappeared.
Has anyone stumbled over him during your own research?
