Their daughter Mabel lost her hearing at the age of five due to scarlet fever. She later became a student of Alexander Graham Bell, then a teacher of deaf children, and they eventually married. Bell would go on to invent the telephone.

Along with her husband, Gertrude was a philanthropist to many institutions, including the Clark School for the Deaf and the Library of Congress. She was killed in 1909 in a collision between her automobile and a car of the Capital Traction Company.
