I promised ages ago to try and put together the family tree for
Walter Howe Doxey and where I fit into the tree. Please find the
tree below with bits of information relating to it. I've also
included a couple of photos that have been handed down. I have
a some more and a collection of postcards of Matlock about 1000
which I must scan and send to you.
