He secured work at Mr. Mahoods property, Wirrabara and then picked up Amelia and their first child (Patrick who was born in July, 1883 in the Asylum). Patrick and Amelia shifted around in the mid north of the state - Wirrabara, Gladstone, Laura, Beetaloo Valley and then came to Warnertown and Port Pirie. Amelia is buried in Port Pirie Cemetery but Patrick's burial place is unknown. Could be buried in Western Australia as it is said he went to live with his eldest son, Patrick Joseph (Joe) Doyle in WA. Patrick and Amelia had: Patrick (divorced with no issue), Margaret Amelia Teresa Ann (died at age 15 years at Laura), Agnes Mary Matilda (divorced but was married to George Benjamin Wilson and had several children), Thomas Jerome (m. to Esther Wilson and they had 10 children), James Bernard (m. to Violet White and they had two children).
