Looking for John senior in 1891 assuming he is in Lanark.


John is a lodger in Govan unmarried in 1891 born Ireland 1858. Sorry no address on FMP just Govan and he is enumerated on own. I can't even find him on A. John born 1888 likely to be Euphemia's illegitimate child tho not with her on 1891 either. Left with grandparents?

Just taken a look at the birth index on SP and I had already looked at John's birth previously so you are in luck. No idea why, perhaps it was another birth on same page. He was born John McDonald illegitimate to Euphemia and there is a correction saying the child was legitimised by her marriage. Doesn't mean John is the father obviously. Do you want me to send you this?
Thanks Barbara.

Yes please.

When we get to 'M' in my tree again we will have another look at McDonald and McFie/McPhee of Inverness and Argyll.
