He married Sarah Jane Elson in Canada West (present-day Ontario), probably in the late 1850s (based on the birth of their first child). They had 10 children together: Mary Elizabeth, John Henry, Sarah Jane, Harriet Ann, Ida Elizabeth, Robert James Edward, William Edward, Alice Matilda, Isabella, and Joseph Samuel.
Sarah Jane died in London, Ontario, on 5 November 1881, nine days after giving birth to their last child. The cause of death was listed as heart disease that had lasted ten days. The informant was listed as William Prince, probably referring to their ten year old son.
