Children of Daniel MacDonald and Eliza Ann Parker

     He was also known as Donald - he is listed that way in his baptismal record at Christ Church, Shelburne, NS. Is this really "my" Daniel? Parents given on marriage certificate as Donald (ok, I guess) and Mary - expected mother to be Elizabeth (Haddy).

Another problem is that his place of birth is given on the marriage certificate as Bay of Islands, whereas it should have been Shelburne County (though there is a small, illegible, note under the Bay of Islands birthplace entry).

The clincher for me is that I have a family note which mentions among other things that Daniel's sister Margaret Ann MacDonald had a sister Isabel Stanley and brothers: John, Dan, James and George. Dan is stated to be married to a --?-- Parker with children Lucy, Annie, Ida and Manley. These facts mesh very well with the known facts for Daniel M(a)cDonald and Eliza Parker and family.
