|"The Four Bettys"|
Elizabeth Muir, her granddaughter Betty Gibson, great grandaughter Betty Murphy and daughter Elizabeth Lindsay
Elizabeth's parents visited briefly on their way from Scotland on an ill-fated journey to find their son Hugh in Australia. Her parents made it to Australia but were never able to locate their missing son; and Elizabeth's father, John Muir, tragically died and was buried there in 1932. Alan Appleby has since discovered that Elizabeth's brother, Hugh, was captured by the Japanese on on the Island of Nauru in 1940 and likely died a prisoner of war. Although devastated by these tragic losses, Elizabeth and David, had to travel to Australia themselves, to bring Elizabeth's mother home with them to Canada. Then, Elizabeth Muir herself passed away in 1948.
