Lewis H Mickey was the Grandfather I never knew personally as I was born in 1944. However my Grandmother and Mother and Aunt over the years told me stories about the life and times of this remarkable individual.
In addition to being an agent for the railroad, he was an Arizona Ranger prior to Arizona becoming a state in 1912. God will always bless and hold men like this.
