    When her mother was so ill Gwen was taken by Walter and Bridget Taylor, Mary's brother and his wife. They were childless and wished to adopt her but Malcolm did not give his permission.
    When Gwen fell off the windmill and broke her hip and had to go to Adelaide and the Children's Hospital for treatment, Walter and Bridget went with her. Gwen stayed on with her uncle and aunt and never returned to Mt Gambler although Malcolm always hoped to see her once more before he died.
    By chance in 1951 her brother Peter and Lexie, his wife encountered Gwen at Hoyts Theatre and after that none of the family saw or heard of her again. She went to live overseas and is believed to be unmarried.
