JAMES KEEVER, farmer; P. O. Mason. The gentleman whose name heads this sketch was born in Warren Co., Ohio, Nov. 25, 1844; he is a son of James and Hester (Lamb) Keever, who settled in Ohio in an early day. The boyhood of our subject was passed on the farm, and in the district school he received an ordinary education. As his father died before his birth he was deprived of that parental care and training so necessary and essential to every child, yet withal, James has succeeded and owns a farm of 106 acres, which is in the northwest quarter of Sec. 20; his land he is fixing up and improving and now bids fair to become a pleasant home. In 1867, he was married to Mary E. Braden, by whom he has had three children – Minnie M., Clara L. and John C. He located where he now lives (the old homestead) in 1872. His brother, Leonidas, enlisted in 1862, in Co. A, 79th O. V. I.; he died three months after, in December, at Gallatin, Tenn.
