From Moore's Freemason's Monthly Magazine, Vol. XXIV, No. 8, June 1865, p. 255:
Many of our readers will regret to learn that Brother Robert Keith, well known to the Brethren of this city, as an old and faithful Mason, died at his residence in Prince Street, on the 24th ult., at the age of 72 years. The deceased was a P.M. of Mount Lebanon Lodge, P. H. Priest of St. Andrew's Chapter, and P.S.G.W. of the Grand Lodge of this State. He was buried on Sunday the 27th, the Members of his Lodge attending the funeral as a body.
He was a faithful Brother, and stood firmly by the Institution in the day of trial. He had been in feeble health for some years past, and we regret to learn has been a great though patient sufferer from the disease which finally terminated his earthly existence. He leaves behind him many friends who will cherish his memory as an honest man and true friend.
