Tombstone Tuesday: Keyes, Mother and Son in Mt. Union Cemetery, Benton Co, OR
Susan Jane Ward Keyes (50 years, 5 mos, 6 days) died on February 20, 1881. Her youngest son, Alexander Doran Keyes (26 years, 5 months, 13 days) died just 3 days later. Both are buried beneath this old oak tree, as were the Keyes before and after, in the Mt. Union Cemetery, near Philomath, Oregon.
Susan Ward Keyes was the wife of David Lowery Keyes and the mother of my great-grandfather James Edward Leonardis Keyes.
