The death of Martin Keck, Frankfort's oldest resident occurred yesterday at 2 o'clock in the afternoon at the home of his son, Andrew Keck. If Mr. Keck had lived to 20 Aug., he would have been 95 years old. The immediate cause of death was blood poisoning, resulting in poor circulation in his lower limbs, and which he was unable to recover from on account of his advanced age. Although he had complained for a number of weeks, Mr. Keck had, up to a few days ago, been unable to work in the garden and do other work about the house. He was born in Johnstown, N.Y., and was a farmer by occupation. Nearly 75 years ago he married Miss Maria Burns who died 23 years ago. Mr. Keck came to Frankfort 24 years ago and for the past 18 years had lived with his son, Andrew. He was a thorough Christian gentleman and enjoyed the respect of all who knew him. For many years he had been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of this place and until he became so deaf that he was unable to hear, attended services regularly. He was also a lifetime Republican. Mr. Keck leaves a sister, Margaret Keck (Margaret Keck Martin), a brother, Joseph both of Johnstown; a daughter, Mrs. Libbie Williams of Little Falls; 3 sons, Peter of Gloversville, Jacob of Johnstown and Andrew of this place, Frankfort.
