Mickle’s wife, the former Edith Belle Davis, had come to Wallowa County, Oregon with her family from Iowa. Mickle Stubblefield was a passionate historian who shared his family history with his children and expanded his use of the written word through an avid letter-writing campaign to explain the true burial site of Chief Joseph.
