Alma Rachael married Robert Stewart Arundle Jarman of Elizabeth Town in June 1908 by the Rev. Delbridge. She became a very good housekeeper and the mother of two daughters and one son.

Arundle Jarman was a good, active farmer. He also had horses, a mower and binder with which he cut crops of wheat, oats and barley for other farmers in the Parkham district and carted the grain to the Deloraine Grain Mill. He also contracted to cut and supply sleepers to the Government Railways.

When in 1930 the family moved to Wattle Bank, Deloraine, Arundle continued contracting with his horses and binder, and later built a home in Parsonage Street.

Their next move was to Westbury where he bought a farm in Selbourne Road. Because of his failing health, Arundle's son was released from the Army to help run the farm. In 1946 he died in hospital in Hobart.
