JOHN M. KECK
An Old Shelby County Resident Dead In Kansas
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.
