Speaking of McDonald's in the Valuation she is next to a Wm McDonald and they are the only two who have no occupations listed.

Thanks for posting the image of Daniel's birth reg earlier.

Just wanted to add that Daniel was born in East Bay, not West Bay. Could well have been a property that Elizabeth was working at or someone took her in at the time of Daniel's birth?

I think the actual address for his birth on the reg is written as 'Strathewan, East Bay'.

The 1885 Valuation Rolls show a Strathewan Villa at Milton Shore (alternative name for East Bay www.archiuk.com/cgi-bin/build_nls_historic_map.pl?search_location=,%20Dunoon,%20Strathclyde&latitude=55.942101&longitude=-4.931793&[email protected]).

An 1886 directory shows at Strathewan, Milton Shore, Misses McMillan boarding and day
https://digital.nls.uk/directories/browse/archive/90653132 (last column, above 'Agents').

Better idea of where Daniel was born, but no closer yet as to who Elizabeth was  :-\

Good to see that his birth reg seems to have her original signature in case you find another signature to compare with (such as a marriage reg or other birth entry).
