George Baxter's abbreviated family tree to show some of the main people involved in Baxter's story

George Baxter's family tree, to keep it simple, initially I have only shown some of the main people involved in Baxter's story, I can add to this as we go. This will hopefully help you understand the sometimes complex relationships between the main parties. It should also help understanding some of the letters from George Baxter and family that are in the Snelling Archive (see Link 1 below)
