While living in East Boston the newlywed couple began their family. Their first Daughter was born Annie Jane Munn on November, 27, 1897. She was named for her grandmother Ann Harvey. Her name was later changed to Ellen Jane(I believe at around the time of her grand mother's death). For some reason she then changed it to Helen Jane, which it remained until her death.

Another move to 469 Broadway in Lawrence, MA brought with it, the birth of twin daughters Catherine and Mabel on September 18, 1905. The couple moved again to neighboring Methuen, MA.in 1905-1906. Sadly Catherine died on January 6,1906 and Mabel died on Janaury 14,1906.
