Aaron was shoemaker, baker and grocer when they first married and they lived at 9 New Street (1871). He was later a furniture dealer and they lived at 172 East Road (at least 1881 until at least 1891) before moving to Loisvale, 71 Hartington Grove.  Annie died at home ‘after a brief illness’ and her funeral took place on Boxing Day 1900.
