      Submitted to Miller County GenWeb by Nancy Thompson: Obituary: Miller County Autogram-Sentinel, August 1939
      «b»Simon P. Keeth«/b», son of John and Katherine (Whittle) Keeth, was born April 16, 1869; died August 12, 1939, at the age of 70 years, 3 months and 27 days. He united with the Christian Church at Pleasant Hill when a young man and lived a devoted Christian until his death.
      At the age of 23 he was married to Miss Nancy Ellen Whittle. To this union 13 children were born, three of whom died in infancy. A daughter, Opal, died 15 years ago at the age of 25 years. His wife preceded him in death April 8, 1921.
      He is survived by nine children, 6 boys and 3 girls--Edgar of Brays, Mo., Mrs. Alma Plemmons and Mrs. Stella Duncan of Brumley, and Mrs. Gertrude Duffield of Rolla, Mo., Eather, Henry, Willard, Connie and Ola of Wapato, Wash.
      On April 23, 1922, he was married to Miss Dora Adams of Pretty Prairie, Kans., who survives him. He is also survived by two brothers, Johnta and Melvin, and two sisters, Mrs. Francis Whittle and Mrs. Cordelia Karr. He also leaves 26 grandchildren and one great-grandson, and his mother-in-law, Mrs. Jane Adams.
      Simon had been sick for two years and eight months. All that loving hearts and willing hands could do was done, but we could not keep him. God called him home and left our home sad and lonely. His son, Eather, came from the state of Washington to be at his bedside to help take care of his father, and it was a great consolation and comfort to his father. He helped care for him the last two weeks he lived.
      The body was laid to rest beside his wife and children in the cemetery at Pleasant Hill. Funeral services were held at Oak View, Monday, August 14. Rev. V. M. Smith preaching the funeral sermon. The body was in charge of Adams & Casey, Iberia undertakers.
