By 1878, David and Emma were living in Portland, Oregon. David was an accountant.

In 1888, their house appeared in two publications that featured prominent homes of Portland.

The Canadian Bank of Commerce; history; https://www.cibc.com/en/about-cibc/corporate-profile/history/mergers-and-amalgamations/the-canadian-bank-of-commerce.html: “Bank of British Columbia, 1862-1901: The Bank of British Columbia was established in 1862 by a group of British businessmen, attracted by gold discoveries in the colony. The bank was headquartered in London, England, where capital for the venture was readily available. Initially opening a branch in Victoria, the bank soon extended its business to include the entire Pacific Coast, opening branches in San Francisco, Seattle and Portland. In 1900, increasing competition from other banks led the bank to accept the merger proposed by The Commerce. When the merger took effect on January 2, 1901, The Commerce acquired a network of 11 branches in British Columbia and the United States as well as an office in London, England.”
