      Information from Marian Watkins, 20 Nov 2009:
      Grandfather was the brother of John [sic] Keen's wife Mary Ann Walker.
      Grandfather and Grandmother Walker lived with Sylvia and her family in Dalby in the later part of their lives. I did not know them but I was told about them. My brother in law Gilbert Arthur David Watkins is still alive and remembers his grandfather well. I will show him the picture of his great aunt Mary Ann.
      Grandfather Walker took some of his children to England to meet his family around 1914
