Two lives of Joseph Docker. By J. M. McMillan

Joseph Docker with wife Sarah and children arrived at Bontharambo Plains on the Ovens River on 12th September 1838, together with numerous livestock and servants / employees. Since then Bontharambo has been a place of iconic significance to the descendants of Joseph Docker and of Matthew Betham Docker, his nephew.
