      James L. Keachie
      is secretary and general manager of the Dexter Creamery -- the most important industry of the town. He was born in Sheffield, Wentworth county, Ontario, Canada, on January 23, 1876, a son of John and Sarah (Kirkpatrick) Keachie. The father, also a native of Sheffield, was born August 14, 1838, while the grandfather, James Bailey Keachie, was born in New York, his parents having emigrated from Scotland. They remained in New York for only a short period, however, crossing the border into Canada and taking up their abode in Ontario. The members of the Keachie family for several generations back had largely been tillers of the soil, and John Keachie, the father of our subject, likewise followed the same pursuit. For the past eight years, however, he has been living a retired life in the town of Galt, Wentworth county.

      His wife was also born in Sheffield Ontario, the date of her birth being March 8, 1845, while her parents were respectively of Scotch and German ancestry. She passed away on July 12, 1894, and her death was deeply regretted by a large circle of friends as well as by her immediate family. Mr. and Mrs. Keachie were the parents of six children, as follows: John B., who resides in Redwood Falls, Minnesota; Mary, the wife of Osborn Howell, of St. George, Ontario, Canada; Anna, who married Dr. James McQueen, living in Freelton, Ontario; James L., of this review; Gertrude, the wife of C. E. Benkley, of New Liskeard, Ontario; and Nellie, the wife of C. E. Cornell, residing in Truman, Minnesota.
