moved to Baylor County on 14 October 1884. In 1885, they moved to a rock house near the creek in Seymour.
Mr. McKeehan was engaged in the general mercantile business with his brother, John C. McKeehan for several years, later taking as his partner, his son-in-law, S. Gorman. The head clerk was J.A. Brittain. The store was sold to T.H. Clark
and later bought by Britain, D.G. Company.
Mr. and Mrs. McKeehan moved to Siloam Springs, Arkansas in September 1897 as their health began to fail and they thought the mountain climate and pure spring water would benefit them.
