Obituary – Stephen Keith
East Liverpool Tribune

Stephen Keith, aged and respected resident of Lisbon and for many years a well known merchant of Hanoverton, died at his home on East Washington street a midnight Friday night (April 10, 1911) after an illness of less than a week with pneumonia. Deceased was born March 12, 1836, at Minerva, and would have celebrated his 75th birthday on Sunday. He was a son of Henson and Margaret Keith. He served as postmaster of Hanoverton 11 years.

On March 12, 1868, deceased was united in marriage with Miss Adah A. Winder, of Hanoverton, who alone survives him, their only son, Stanford, having died four years ago.

The condition of Mrs. Keith is considered very serious, as he has been confined to her bed for about five weeks suffering from a severe attack of pneumonia, from which she was slowly recovering when her aged husband was stricken ill.

Mr. Keith served in the Civil war and was a prominent member of the Masonic lodge. Funeral services will be held at the family home on Monday evening at 7 o’clock, and interment will be made Tuesday at Hanoverton.
