They remained there until 1903 and returned to Indiana in 1905. After William died, Carmie and their children lived in Oklahoma for the years 1907-1922. She married James Tabor in 1921 and soon after returned to Indiana, where she remained for the rest of her life.

He married in Albuquerque, NM while living there from 1902-1903 and was again in New Mexico between 1905 and 1906. William died from typhoid fever and pneumonia on 30 June 1906 in Parke Co., Indiana.
