Thank you - I will have a look there.

Unfortunately I don't know her grandmothers name.

The only information I have was from my great aunt (Annie Kerr's daughter) and it is half remembered stories. My great aunt was a child when her mother died and the only left at home. She was sent to Australia to live with her older sister when her mother died and her father remarried. So she didn't really know much and had never met any of Annie Kerr's family members and they were not spoken about. She say she thought her mum may have had a brother called Robert who had an accident with an umbrella as a child and took a blow to the head and may have been institutionalised - but again I can find no evidence of this either!

No I haven't found it yet. The death date I have is from dna match but he also put Mary Jane Kerr as the same death date. I have found hers and it is correct. Haven't found Sarah Gallaghers yet though.

Could be "M.S." which means maiden surname.

There are two Sarah Gallaghers who died in 1903, aged 47 and 61 respectively, one in Maryhill and one in Falkirk.  One of them is likely your Sarah since she is declared deceased at the time of Mary Jane's death, but is alive in the 1901 Census.

Thanks Eileen - Did you find this on Scotland's People?

Yes, but I don't have any credits to view, so you should see if either of them are yours.
