In December of 1883, Broward's first wife of 11 months(Georgiana Carolina "Carrie" Kemp) died during childbirth; Broward's son died a few days later. Broward withdrew from the river for a while and traveled north, but by 1885 he was back on the St. Johns, piloting his father-in-law's steamboat Kate Spencer. On the ship he met Annie Isabell Douglass, a frequent passenger. They were married in 1887
When he became governor in 1905, Annie and their 8 children had to rent a large home in Tallahassee for the first 2 years. In 1907 when the first mansion was completed, the Browards were the first to occupy Florida's official governor's home.
