They settled in the Village of Audley where he remained until 1901. The family homestead was located on the s/w corner of Audley Road and Taunton Road in which they raised 12 children. Of these children, son Robert was ordained in Rome, Italy, becoming a member of the Basilian Order. He later taught at Assumption College, Windsor and then St. Michael's College, Toronto. Daughter Mary entered the Loretta Abbey and was later known as Mother Bathilde. James, one of the younger sons, took over the farming of the family homestead.
