Death of J. M. Keefer.

J. M. [Joseph M.] KEEFER died yesterday morning [April 29, 1897] at his home in Union county, about seven miles southeast of Creston, after two weeks' illness from typhoid malaria. Mr. KEEFER was well known in Ringgold county, having lived there from 1881 to 1894. He was a native of Ohio and was about 40 years of age. He was married after coming to this county to Miss Mildred McCLURG, who, with two sons and three daughters, survives him. Mr. KEEFER was a consistent member of the Methodist church and was a man highly esteemed by all who knew him. The funeral will be held this afternoon at two o'clock, the interment being in a neighboring cemetery [Harmony Cemetery, rural Shannon City]. The widow and children have the sympathy of many friends in this county.

NOTE: Mildred (McCLURG) KEEFER was born in 1864 and died in 1944. She was interred at Harmony Cemetery.
