Hugh Lee was the third of five boys born to William Savage Keating, Sr. and Blanche Brazelton Routh Keating who had a ranch on Pompi Cheek in Mills County, Texas. He was about six years old when his mother died and he and his younger brother, Bill, stayed with their uncle George Carter Routh, and his wife, Lila until they were old enough to stay with their father and brothers on the ranch. As a teenager, he and his brothers, Curtis and Bill, accompanied his father west to Arizonia. They made the trip by train. Hugh married Mable Hope Temple of Bisbee, Arizonia and they made their home in El Centro, Imperial County, California where they raised two children. Hugh was a county judge in El Centro many years and a well known and respected citizen in the community. He was never too busy to listen and council citizens seeking his advice. Stories of Judge Keating still appear from time to time in the historical section of the local paper.
