William H. Lockridge was a surveyor of legendary proportions. His surveys of the Grand Canyon Railway and most of northern Arizona mining claims filed during the late 1800s and early 1900s are still a matter of record in the Coconino and Yavapai County Recorder offices. "Pop" Lockridge finally settled into the Grand Canyon area. He and his family became a cherished part of the community and served it well in many capacities. In those fledgling years residents and the community frequently needed property, homestead, and claim surveys and cash was always in short supply. Those who needed help the most were recipients of his generosity and skills at no cost or in trade for community services. In this way his skills and those of others benefited the grand Canyon School and other community buildings. Although times were hard "Pop" in his way, helped to make the Grand Canyon community a better place in which to live.
