They had 5 children - two sons and then three daughters, all born in Scotland at Garnethill, Kelvinside, Glasgow.
Sarah Ann’s younger son, Charles Ferguson Kerr (1873-1923) married Kathleen Marie Taylor in 1907 in Coleraine, Co. Londonderry, Ulster. He died in Scotland at "Egremont", Helensburgh, Dunbartonshire.
