An Old Shelby County Resident Dead In Kansas
          Word has reached this place concerning the death and burial of  John M. Keck, of Winfield, Kansas, who formerly resided in this county.
          Mr. Keck was born and reared in Shelby County.  He was a brother of  Peter  and  Gideon Keck.
          Mr. Keck went to Kansas about twenty-five years ago, and succeeded in amassing a comfortable fortune.  He was largely interested in cattle, farming and banking institutions.
          The Windfield papers speak feelingly of his life and character, dwelling upon his ever readiness to aid those in sorrow and affliction.
