Sandy's first wife Ellen Dunn had passed away and they had a Family of four. Their daughter Jessie remained in Scotland, but Charles, Alexander, and Ellen (who later married James Lindsay) came to Canada with their father and his new wife. The family settled in the Ottawa valley, and most of them are buried in the Albert Street Cemetery in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada.
