Frank C. Keith, an old resident of Springfield, died Sunday morning at Plymouth, as the result of the third of a series of shocks which he has recently suffered.
Mr. Keith was born in Dalton, Ill., Feb. 2, 1849, and spent his boyhood days in that state until 1864, when he came with his father and mother to Springfield, settling in one of the rich meadow farms of the Connecticut valley. Soon afterward the family moved to North Springfield, where they remained until 1880, then moving to West Windsor. In 1891, however, it was thought best to return to North Springfield, where Mr. Keith has since made his residence.
About a week ago he went with a party of relatives to Lake Rescue, intending to spend a short time in camp at the lake. After a few days he was stricken by an epileptic shock and died a few hours later.
Mr. Keith is survived by a wife, a brother, Royal Keith of West Windsor, a sister, Mrs. Henry Parker of North Springfield, and three children, Frank and George Keith and Mrs. B. W. Bannister, all of Springfield. Mr. Keith was well beloved by all who knew him, and his many friends will mourn deeply the loss which has come to them by his death.
