The Mystery of Ambrose Small

Master Weirdist Charles Fort once made a jest involving two mysterious vanishings: "Was somebody collecting Ambroses?"

One of the Ambroses involved was the famous Ambrose Bierce.

The other was much less-known: Ambrose Small.

One would think that after so many years, all had been said about Small's disappearance. But I can't find any reference to this further extension of the case as seen below.

The Toronto disappearance often gets mentioned in the local news and various media sources leading up to Halloween. This disappearance has also been featured in a few television series here as well.

Hmm. I've never heard of this case. I lived in Rosedale for years and walked all through the ravine, you could easily hide a body or five in it. Wonder what happened to the poor bugger?

Many moons ago it was easier for unscrupulous relatives to get rid of a well to do relative in order to claim their assets.
