At the time of his arrival his family consisted of four members. Mr. Coad and his children, with the exception of George, proceeded to the United States a few years after the Rebellion.

George Coad retained the homestead ; he married Jane Johnston, and raised the following family: Robert, who married Sarah Johnston; Abraham, married Frances Connor ; Mary Jane, married J. W. Lockwood; Isabella, married John Stratton; Joseph (see personal sketch), also James, Ella, and George, unmarried.
