He and his bride went to Boston, Mass. where their first son, William, was born. Since Charles was at sea for long periods of time, Eliza returned to her home in Lot 16. The couple had three children born on PEI: Edward, and twins, Mary Ann and Margaret. William married Jessie Adeline Day from Wellington. Jessie's parents were Kerridge and Isabel (Crossman, from Bedeque) Day. The family belonged to the church in Wellington where her father was a Sunday School teacher. Following the death of Kerridge Day, his widow married Richard Yeo of Lot 16. They are buried in St. James Methodist Cemetery in Lot 16.
