How many "segwit" accounts do you have in Ledger Live, excluding "native-segwit"?
Because if the address that you want to sign is in the second or third+ account, it won't be restored in Electrum using the default derivation path.

Try to create another Electrum wallet but after selecting "p2sh-segwit (p2wpkh-p2sh)";
Change the derivation path below from m/49'/0'/0' to m/49'/0'/1' (for the 2nd account) or m/49'/0'/2' (for the 3rd account) and so forth.

Just one segwit account and one native segwit.  I couldn't find anywhere on Ledger Live to see the associated paths for the accounts.
Thanks

That's easy.
  • Open Ledger Live.
  • Click on the "Accounts" button on the left side.
  • Find and click on the correct account that you are looking for.
  • In the top right corner you will see a wrench icon. Click on it to see the account settings.
  • Click on "Advanced".
  • Find the line that says "FreshAddressPath". That's your derivation path, copy it.


You don't need the whole thing. Use the format that nc50lc wrote down previously.
You might see something like m/49'/0'/0'/0/7'' depending on how many addresses you already used and funded on that account. Don't pay attention to the last two digits because you don't need them.

How else can I prove ownership of the address?  I assumed that once I signed and verified the address via the Ledger Live/Electrum method (which was successful) that I needed to send those details (address, message, signing hash) to the person that needs to verify it for proof?

This in theory should be a simple task but I'm on it for two days now.

pair electrum with ledger again in a fresh wallet file and this time choose legacy as the address type when asked. you can begin again via file > new/restore. then you'll be able to generate signatures that can be verified using third party tools. only legacy addresses have a standard signature format.
