Can you give approx dates for Elsie? Birth, marriage or death.

Also places if you know any

I'm not exactly sure of dates, but I'm guessing mid to late 1800's? early 1900's?  She had a son named Patrick Strathnairn Valentine Porter and lived in New Zealand.. Christchurch I think? As far as I know, she was originally from Ireland?
Sorry I meant Edith McCoy, not Elsie McCoy. My apologies

Well I have been looking at the electoral rolls.

Searching for Elsie Porter I found two. The one living in Christchurch had a husband Charles and I found the marriage in 1915 of Elsie Hines to Charles Porter. The other one lived up North and her husband was William.

Next I searched for Donald Kerr Porter and found one living alone and in all the rest, the wife was Edith Hinemoa Porter.

So what you have does not match up.

How did you come by the info that Patrick Strathnairn Valentine Porter was the son of Elsie & Donald Kerr Porter?

The Donald Kerr Porter you have with the wife Edith Hinemoa Porter is the correct one. Donald Keer Porter had an affair with Elsie McCoy and had a child out of wedlock named Patrick Valentine Strathnairn Porter, hence why I think there is no record of Donald and Elsie ever being an offical couple
