Emil and Christina had four children: Charles (1884), Arthur (1887), Walter (1890) and Ella (1893). The first three survived to adulthood, but Ella died on September 12, 1894, four months before her second birthday. In about 1892, the family bought a house at 2261A Indiana Avenue, where they would stay for the rest of Emil's life. In order to pay the mortgage, they at times took on boarders.
