Margaret Helen Kerr

Date of Bith: 1879
Place of Birth: Campsie, Strilingshire

Good morning,  another of my Scottish Women's Hospital ladies. This case is different, i know her date of birth and when she died(1957). I know about her war years(i have that on my web site). What i don't know is what she did from 1919 till her death.  I think she returned to Serbia in 1919 and worked at the orphanage at Banjina basta(found her name in a book, listing that Margaret Kerr was in a photo)  and returned to Scotland to Lochearnhead. We have a Margaret Ker living in Lochearnhead and am convinced people are confusing Ker with Kerr. However in this link Margaret Ker is different to Kerr http://www.stirlingarchives.scot/2016/03/29/suffragettes-allt-grianach-lochearnhead-1935/ 

Any details of what became of Margaret Helen Kerr during 1919-1930's would clear this up.

Many thanks for having a look.
regards
Alan

If she's the daughter of George Munro KERR then she marries John FREW (La Perle Estate,St Lucia) October 12,1927,at St Andrews Church,Georgetown,British Guiana.
Kirkintilloch Herald October 19, 1927

Bit of to and fro travel after that.

Sorry-have to go out.

Many thanks MaureeninNY.  Ill keep digging. Looks like the other Margaret Ker was in New York in the late 1020s but with Margaret Kerr in British Guiana in the late 1920s its a puzzle.

Thank you ev,  am more leaning to, it was Margaret Ker that was in Lochearnhead at that time. That said i found on a 1935 census that she was living in England. The plot thickens.
