He married, 1865, Jersey City, NJ, Eliza M. Fortin. She was born circa 1848, NY, and died 8 Oct 1886, Manhattan, NY.

On 13 Mar 1871, he and his family arrived in New York aboard the Schooner Mattie Holmes, bound from Demerara.[1] It appears that they were from the United States and just visiting Demerara. They had all occupied the "Cabin" while on board.
