      C.C.B. re William McKeough
      His father, Thomas McKeough, came to this country while William was a child and settled in Paris, Ontario. Some few years afterwards, losing his entire fortune, William was obliged to leave home at an early age. He became apprenticed to Edward Jackson of Hamilton, where he learned his trade, and with whom he remained until he attained his majority. He settled in Chatham in 1847, and in company with his brother, John McKeough, carried on a large and extensive business He was mayor of the town in 1871; was one of the chief promoters and first president of the Erie and Huron Railroad; has been a member of the school board for the past twenty-five years; and to his zeal and energy in school matters are due to a great extent the present very efficient condition of the common schools of Chatham. Mr. McKeough is a Reformer in politics, and was the unanimous nominee of the Reform party in Kent to represent them in the Federal parliament on several occasions, but declined the honour. He is a member and a trustee of the Methodist church. Our subject has always taken an active interest in all matters for the promotion of the welfare of the town and county.
