Eric gave his parents names as William McDonald Daniels and Florence Mary Powell, yet his mother was named on his death certificate as Ethel Rose Stowell. (the informant was my Nana)
I had found Ethel and William divorced in 1912 and William married Florence Powell in 1913.
Witnesses were Nana's eldest sister, Alice Crowl nee Adams and L. Powell.
I haven't been able to find if L. Powell was a relative of Eric's stepmother.
A couple of years ago I recorded in a post what I found about Eric's parents in Trove.
The post is DANIELS family North Melbourne - Trove Tuesday
|Brenda Mary Adams age 21 in 1926, two years before she married Eric.|
A postcard she sent to her maternal Uncle, Alexander Morgan in New Zealand.
Eric and Brenda went on to have their little boy Ronald Francis Daniels in February 1930.
