Susan Gosney Keith Obituary

Clark County Clipper, May 2, 1907


Susan Gosney was born in Ohio County, Va., March 3, 1833.  She departed this life at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. H. Clay, Friday morning at 5:30 a.m., as a result of LaGrippe from which she had suffered for some time.

The deceased was an early settler of Clark County.  She was past 74 years of age; moved with her parents from Virginia to Illinois; was married to F. G. Keith in 1854.  She then moved to Clark County and had made this her home ever since.  She had been a member of the Christian church for more than thirty years and had lived a good Christian life.  Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Keith.  Six of this number are now living.  They are John, Perry, Harry, Albert, Mrs. J. H. Clay and Mrs. L. D. Haydock.  Her husband and two daughters preceded her some time ago.  The funeral services were held Sunday at the Christian church, Elder C. C. McClain preaching the funeral sermon, and the body was laid to rest in the Ashland cemetery.
