Schuyler met Thomasia Overton Hancock (1879-1964) of "Ellerslie" in nearby Albemarle County. They married in 1906 and moved to Tampico, where they raised cattle, fruit, and vegetables on the Poitevents' ranch until the Mexican Revolution forced them to abandon their interests and leave the country. In 1914 they settled in Ocean Springs with their only child, Schuyler, junior (1911-1978). The younger Schuyler earned a law degree at the University of Virginia

married May Eleanor Staples (1847-1932) of New Orleans. They became the parents of three: Cora May (1868-?), Vera (1874-1897), and Schuyler (1875-1936).
