Hi David,

What is it you want to find out about her please?

if you think the above info kindly found by Andrew, is the correct person, you might want to look at the following;

There is a marriage cert on www.scotlandpeople.gov.uk for David Petrie marrying Euphemia Graham in Glasgow City in 1896, this should detail both of the parents of Euphemia and David

There is 1 birth cert of a Euphemia Graham in Renfrewshire between 1876 and 1878

In Scotland if the father is not named on the birth certificate then there may be a RCE (Register of Corrected Enties) in the margin of the birth register if the mother went to court to prove paternity. Otherwise the father's name may never be proved.
