Felix G. Keith Obituary

Clark County Clipper, June 10, 1898


Felix G. Keith born in Union county, Illinois, November 23rd, 1823, departed this life at Ashland, Kansas, June 3rd, 1898; aged 74 years, 6 months and ten days.

Felix G. Keith and Susan Goseny were married January 1st, 1854.  Of this union eight children were born - four boys and four girls.  The wife and six children survive him.

Uncle Felix, as he was familiarly known, was one of the counties oldest and most respected citizens, having lived here for about ten years.  He was an honest conscientious man who endeavored to live up to his every profession.  He professed to be a Christian and so lived that his profession might accord with his acts.

He leaves an honorable family whose devotion is unquestioned, and who will have the profound sympathy of the whole community in their great loss.

Card of Thanks.

We take this method of thanking the many friends who so kindly assisted us during the sickness of husband and father, and so gently laid him to rest after the race was ended.  For these kindness we shall ever trust that such trials as we have been required to pass through may be stayed to you till inevitable.

Susan Keith and Family.
