I would love to make contact with all my relatives in the Doxey line. The Doxey's were primarily from the North Shore area of Nassau County, Long Island, NY (Glen Cove, Glen Head, Oyster Bay, Locust Valley, Glenwood Landing, Albertson. The oldest I know of is William Doxey who married Ellen Drew. They were born around 1850. Their children are Willam, Joseph, Rufus, Rue Hane, and Sarah Ann Doxey. Several of the Doxey's were Glen Cove Policemen and Volunteer Firemen. Nicknames were abundant throughout the families such as Buddy, Dolly, Bucky, DeeDee, Doc, Dox, DooDoo, and Bubbie, to name a few. My e-mail address is valc1@i-2000.com Thank you for any information that you may have.

HI I hope it hasn't been too long..but I would still like to communicate about the Doxey family. I remember you mentioned someone from a Church that remembers the Doxey family, if possible I would love their name and number.

Thank you!

Dear Jim: I am a decendent of the Doxey family on Long Island. What I can tell you is that the first Doxsey to arrive in New England was Thomas Doxey (1640) on the Little James, from England. He and his wife, Catherine and young son Thomas Jr. lived in New London, CT and Southold, LI. He died and is one of the first recorded deaths in New London. His wife remarried Daniel Lane of Southold. Young Thomas was sent back to England for an education, but returned. The Doxey family continues to live on Long Island - and by the way my father's nick name is Doc (Wilbur E. Doxsey) and his brother's nickname was Buddy (Charles Doxsey). We are also a part of the Doxee family of Doxee Clams. My father was very interested in geanology and did much work on the Nassau Doxsey/Doxey/Doxee family. He has forwarded much information to the Mormons, Salt Lake City UT. I have a flopy disk with his information on it, but have not been able to download it yet. My Dad has dementia now and cannot clearly remember very much. I have quite a bit in my memory, including the fact that the Doxey's were Tories, and some were exiled to Nova Scotia after the Revolution. Stay in touch.
