All the information given re registration is from

The original will be in the Ontario Archives. They will not do research.

If you know his death date you can get a copy from the Ontario Vital Stats at a cost. It should give his mother [if the informant knew the name].

I checked the 1861 census for McGillvray single women but there are too many without having a first name to narrow it down.

Witness on his marriage was a Miss McGillvray so that could have been his mother. I couldn't find him on 1891 census with a single older woman.

Did find this in 1891 census in Roxborough Stormont
A Donald McGillvray, cousin, aged 26, b Ontario, parents b Ont, labourer is with William McGillvray,23.
Here is the whole census item.
William, 23, Ont, father b England, mother Ontario, laborer
Donald, cousin, 26
Mary 44, father b Ontario, mother Scotland, servant,
Christy, 53, widow, mother, father b Ont, mother Scotland
Murdoch, 41, lodger, f Ont, m Scotland
Alexander, 27, lodger, f England, m Ont
Roderick, 16, lodger, Ont, Ont
William, 18, Lodger, Ont, Ont
Bella, 16, lodger, Ont, Ont
John,7, lodger, Ont, Ont
All born Ontario.

Daniel/Donald's birth won't be registered as registration didn't begin until 1869. Church records would be your only source.
