Seeking any ancestors/descendants of my grandmother MABEL GRANT her parents were GEORGE NELSON GRANT & MARY HANNAH COPELAND
Parents of George Nelson Grant were JOHN GRANT & EUPHEMIA NELSON they were married in Edinburgh, George was born there but at a date unknown moved to Derby where he worked as a travelling postman
George married Mary Plewes Street in 1863 and I believe their son Edward Plewes Grant was my granmother`s half brother, Mary died in 1866 and George remarried 1868 to Mary H.Copeland, I am seeking information on any other children they had, my grandmother Mabel was born in 1874, at Rose St Derby in 1881 the family were then living in Perth, but in 1889 my grandmother was in a childrens home in Edinburgh why? she was then sent to Canada where she married my gtandfather Stephen Geoghan/Gagan in 1894

Greorge Nelson Grant was living in England (shown on the 1901 census)
so it is a puzzle why my grandmother was in a home? can anyone help with any information
thank you
