Edmund and Sarah had a falling out with the Catholic church which refused entry to their children when they fell ill. The person who drove the family to church every Sunday was a member of the Salvation Army and he offered them access to his church at any time.

Edmund took up his offer and his family became strong devotees of the Salvation Army in Victoria. Edmund and Sarah were never very long in the one place and travelled extensively around the state of Victoria. Their 9 children were born between the ruggered gold fields in Ballarat to the lush farming lands in Gippsland. They finally settled in the outer Metropolitan suburb of Brunswick where Edmund died at the age of 79. Sarah("little Granny") did a magnificient job of keeping the family together and passed away at the age of 94 years while still living in the Brunswick area.
