They lived on a farm near Valley Falls until their removal to Topeka in 1903. Mrs. McKEEVER is survived by her husband and six sons; E.D. McKEEVER, Topeka; J.R. McKEEVER and H.S. McKEEVER, Oklahoma City; G.V. McKEEVER, Valley Falls; Prof. W.A. McKEEVER, Manhattan, and H.G. McKEEVER, Enid, Ok.
The funeral was held from the Methodist church here Thursday at 10 o'clock, Rev. C.S. ZOOK officiating at the services. All the sons and the father, many relatives and friends were in attendance. The body was laid to rest in Rose Hill cemetery by the side of her son Joseph and a daughter.
