Curtis F. Keeves, son of A. S. Keeves, of Savannah, fell down stairs while preparing to go to bed at the family home last Sunday night, Jan. 23, 1898, and broke his neck, producing death six hours later. The dead man had long been a sufferer with epileptic fits and in one of these he met the injury that produced his death. Mr. Keeves was thirty-nine years old and unmarried. He had been a clerk in his father's dry goods store for twenty five years. The funeral took place at the M. E. Church, South, Wednesday afternoon of this week, at 2 o'clock. This young man was a son of "Tony" Keeves, well known here, having often visited relatives here. Mr. Keeves has the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends in this community in his hour of affliction.
