Herman Ingersall Keep
Birth: 1848
Death: 1920

JUNE 16 1920
Following a protracted illness the
death of Herman Keep occurred at his
home in Burdett Monday June 7.
Mr. Keep- was a descendent of one
of, the prominent pioneer families of
the town of Hector, a son of the* late
Colonel and Mrs. Caleb Keep of Bennettsburg.

He was for several years a partner
in the Burdett Flour Mills. When he
sold his interest in the mill business
he purchased a valuable farm on the
Lake Road and became one of the
prominent farmers of that section.
Last spring he purchased a residence
on Lake street in Burdett and with
his family was occupying this delightful
home at the time of his death. Mr.
Keep's gentle and kindly nature won
for him the affection and respect of
a host of friends who earnestly sympathize
with the family in their great
bereavement. He is survived by his
widow, whs has tenderly cared for
him during his long illness, three children:
Margaret and John at home
and Carrie Keep of Watkins, also two
brothers, Joseph Keep of Burdett,
Martin Keep of Rochester and a sister,
Mrs. Taber of Potoski, Mich.
The funeral service was conducted
by Rev. A. B. Judson on Thursday
afternoon at the home, interment in
the family plot in Hector Union.
