With one year of medical school, he was a great help with medical emergencies. With the farm purchased, a house was built with the neighbour’s help, and while here four more children were born; Annie Isabelle, Elma Jane, Mona Annette and Marion Blanche. His son, Lloyd, was the only one of the seven children to remain in Laird and he built a house on what is now the corner of the highway and Pumpkin Point Road. His training, which took place at a mechanics school in Michigan led to a degree in Motor and Tractor Mechanics. He opened a garage beside his house, and made his living servicing the farm vehicles and automobiles as well as selling gas. Lloyd married Olive Mick in 1929, and they had four children.
