The record for Sarah Gallagher at Maryhill 1903 is a death record for a Margaret Gallagher
The record for Sarah Gallagher in Falkirk 1903 is a record for a Sarah Ballander (I think) and her parents were William and Jane Galllagher.
Also tried the 1897 Sarah Gallagher death record and it is for Sarah White whose mother is Sarah Gallagher.

Well, that is indeed unfortunate.  Did you notice that John and Sarah show up in the 1891 Census twice on Nicholas Street -- once with her kids and once they're living with his mother and several others, but no Kerrs.

Yes I thought that was strange maybe viewing the original record on SP think Ancestry has boobed again ..SP showing 2 different reference numbers for both families

Having sorted through all the Ann Kerr/Carr entries in the civil births at irishgenealogy.ie, I have one possibility.

Anne b. 1st(?) March 1871 daughter of (blank) and Sarah Kerr, Barrack Row, Derry.

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1871/03310/2213235.pdf

There's only one Ann born to a James and Sarah on 10 August 1872 in Kilkeel; mother's maiden name is McCartin.

Also went looking for some proof that James existed. In the 1888 Glasgow trades directory, there is a James Kerr, a tailor listed on Main Street.

However, as can be seen by the 1890 directory, there are a few James Kerrs in the clothing business:

Sarah Kerr /Gallagher is hiding well spent a few hours this morning going through the Irish records ..I can't find any census records for the family before 1891 thought there might have been some baptisms if they were RC ..There was a RC  record for the marriage of Minnie Kerr but no luck with witnesses being family members

Thank you Eileen and Rosie!
I am having a lot of trouble finding anything about her too! I believe the family may have been Catholic as my Grandfather was brought up as Catholic.
Interesting that there is no father mentioned in the birth entry record for Anne Kerr.

I didn't find the census with Sarah and John Gallagher with his mum - is that on ancestry?

Don't think this has been mentioned before but will throw it in for consideration.

Family Search has a N.Y. death for a James Carr born Ireland c1878 (in Ulster Carr/Kerr are the same name and sometimes in other parts of Ireland Corr is another variant)- parents James Carr & Sarah Gallagher-

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Annie's son was your grandfather, right?  Married in a Church of England, but the son raised Catholic?  Was he raised by others?
