    Correction.

    I think there needs to be just a small edit, I believe his daughter’s first name is Ami, not Amy.

    According to this genealogy of his paternal grandfather, Micky’s father has verified German ancestry (but through other lines than Kendler):

    So “possibly” can be removed.

    Change his mother’s ethnicity to: English, Swiss-German, German, Irish, French, Welsh

    Another genealogy (focusing on his mother’s side): http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=PED&db=dowfam3&id=I358509

    Micky’s maternal grandfather was Uncas Johnson (the son of William Edward Johnson and Emma Miller). William was the son of David Johnson and Nancy Caroline Hopkins. Emma was the daughter of Henry Miller, who was Swiss, and Katrina, who was born in Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, of German descent.

    The reason why I think Katrina had German ancestry is that Emma Miller’s mother’s birthplace was listed as “Germany” on the 1920 Census.

    Micky’s maternal grandmother was Mene Marie Hamby (the daughter of Charles “Charlie” Henry Hamby and Nancy E. Braddock). Nancy was the daughter of Joel Duverne Braddock and Lucy A. Cavendish.
