Robert Mickey - Civil War Soldier

Robert Micket is the grandson of Peter Gary, Sr. through his daughter Catherine Gary Mickey.

Robert Mickey was born abt 1825  which would have made him about 37 years old when he fought in the Civil War. According to his pension file, Robert Mickey enlisted in Co. C, 54th PA Infantry (not proven). Drafted. Applied for a veteran's pension as having served in the 54th PA Infantry (1862-65) and said he was wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg, but his claim was denied because no record of such service could be found in any company or regimental records. At the time he says he was drafted, Robert was working near Cameron "digging potatoes." Copies of the various pages from his pension file are pictured below
