    Since the 1900 census, John Bailey Keith Jr has married, had two sons, and been widowed.  His father also died during this time.  He is the head of the household, hosting his widowed mother Mary Constance Terry Keith, as well as his brother Herschel and Herschel's wife and son.  John has changed businesses, now running a hotel instead of a grocery store.
