It could carry vessels of 240 tons with a draft of 6'. Their first two children, Ida Keziah and George Wallace, were born on the Canal. About 1880, they moved to Brooklyn, N.Y. and Edward engaged in New York Harbor and Erie Canal Shipping. He was a partner in the firm of William E. Cleary, 17 South Street, N.Y.C.. Edward was elected a Member of the Assembly in 1895 (118th session) representing the 6th Assembly District of Kings County. Edward became a member of the Assembly mainly to protect his business interests such as obtaining money appropriations to keep the canal dredged and to further the interests of incorporating the Erie Canal into the larger New York State Barge Canal. Both Edward and Mary were active in the Masons and Eastern Star after they moved to Brooklyn. Edward was initiated into Nassau Lodge #536 on March 11,1880.

The Eastern Star helped Mary establish a small candy store business to support the family. Mary died at the age of 83 years, 11 months, 18 days.
