Peter YOUTS from Switzerland - Possible Death at Sea

Surnames: Youts
There is a story in the family that cannot be proved or disproved.

Story is Peter Youts (last name could have changed) from Switzerland (don't know what Canton/area) sold his store/shop for an undetermined amount of gold. Shortly there after he boarded a ship (unknown) for the United States. However, he never disembarked. So the family story is that he was robbed and killed (thrown overboard). He was never heard from again. A while later his widow and 3 children immigrated to the US and resided in St Joseph, Indiana.

There are many holes to that story, I know - but can anyone help me out?
