From 1895 to 1905 he was a general agent for the Winnipeg firm of Frost & Wood Company. In 1905 he went into partnership with R. H. Orr in ownership of the Palace Hotel at Deloraine. He married Sarah Jane Sanders of Killarney, in February 1886. They had three children: Harold E. Lindsay, May Lindsay, and Frank Linday.
