      "It gets a bit tricky here but gets even more complicated when I go a bit futher into the family story.

      Euphemia McDonald died 6 Dec 1898 Holm St, Blythswood, Lanark, widow of James McDonald, age 65
      - parents Donald McPhee, farmer (dec) and Jessie McPhee (CAMERON) (dec) Witness James Stronanch, son-in-law.

      We are lucky that there seem to be very few Euphemia McPHEE/ McDONALD. So from her death certificate we have to try and find what is correct and what is perhaps not.

      James and Effie's 4th child was Janet born 5 April 1858 in Inverness. She married James STRONACH in 1886 at Blythswood, Lanark. Their marriage certificate clearly confirms both of Janet's parents. Janet also died in Holm St Blythswood I presume in the same house as her mother, Effie.

      So the date, place of death and son-in-law all fit but her parents as given by her son-in-law James seem to be way off. There is no sign that I can see of an Euphemia McPHEE being born in Banavie Kimallie 1820-1830 to a Donald & Jessie or to a Donald & unknown or to an unknown & Jessie or in fact anything other than Alexander and Catherine. I stand to be corrected on that.
