Update – J. E. Keith and Mary LaHeist Keith – Breckinridge County

The Breckenridge News, Cloverport, Breckinridge County, Kentucky

Wednesday, September 16, 1908

Mr. and Mrs. Keith have been featured in two blogs, J. E. Keith Narrowly Escapes Death by Drowning and John E. Keith Obituary.  I could find article about their golden wedding anniversary, celebrated August 31, 1908.  However, the September 2, 1908, issue of The Breckenridge News was missing from the newspaper archives.

Mary Elizabeth LaHeist Keith has such a lovely, kind face, and John Keith was evidently a very handsome man (note the wavy hair!).  John was a marble cutter, particularly for gravestones.  Does the patch over the left eye cover an accident from a chip of marble?  Enjoy the two posts if you have not read them.

 

Any thoughts?
