Felix married Lois Anderson on October 12, 1912, practiced medicine in Flagstaff, and served as Coconino County Health officer and head of the state health department. He died of a heart attack in 1954. Yettie married Edward M. Brown on April 20, 1907. Julia wed Albert E. Kleiser on September 7, 1904. Thomas Peyton, also a physician, served as Coconino County Physician for a time.
