Before Ginsburg left London for Brazil, January 21, 1890, he was engaged to Carrie Bishop, a trained nurse of the Royal Hospital. Their plan was for her to come to Brazil after a year or so. When she did arrive in Brazil, they married, but she died four months later.

United States. She was a single missionary who arrived in
Brazil in 1889. She married Ginsburg August 1, 1893, and
they had two sons and four daughters. His autobiography is
affectionately dedicated to "Mrs. Emma Morton Ginsburg,
the consecrated missionary, self-sacrificing mother, and
devoted companion, who for these thirty years has shared
with me all my trials and joys."
