I purchased the subject studio portrait of a young man taken by Black & Case, Boston & Newport, RI. It is identified on the back of the mount in period ink handwriting:

"Samuel Moody Keep
Father of Ezra Keep"

A 3-cent Internal Revenue tax stamp affixed to the back of the mount is canceled with a date reading:


This individual appears in Public Member Trees posted on He is listed in the 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1900 Census data for Jay, Franklin Co., ME. He is included in "Maine, Marriage Records, 1705-1922" and "Maine, Death Records, 1617-1922." He was employed as a farmer.

On 28 Jan 1868, Samuel married Maria L. Rockwood (1845-1895). The couple had six children, including Ezra M. Keep (1876-1931).
