Perhaps DNA is the only way forward.

My Great Grandad born originally in Gloucestershire, went to Valpariso, Chile, to work on the railways, leaving his Wife and family, never to be seen again

A few years ago, through DNA it seems he fathered children, with local women, eventually marrying in Chile, having more children.

We now have Cousins, in Chile and America, all through DNA. I’ve got photos and records all sent from my Chilean Cousins.

Fantastic! Well done. Yes, I've done the DNA thing and found many, many relations on my mother's side of the family but not a single match on my father's side. Ah well, maybe it's not to be...
