A well-known man around Winslow for many years was Benjamin Franklin Ketchum, known as Frank, who was often called upon to extract automobiles from the Little Colorado River. While serving as town marshal in the early 1900s, Ketchum was involved in a notorious shooting that prompted his reputation as “lawman Ketchum, who sure can catch ‘em.” For more information on Winslow’s history, visit www.oldtrailsmuseum.org.
