Y., Dec. 3, 1799; converted at the age of twelve; entered the Genesee Conference in 1820; in 1831-34 was presiding elder on Black River District, and in 1835 on Cayuga District, where he died April 22,1836. Mr. Keyes possessed a grasping intellect and great application. Without regular instruction, he acquired " a respectable knowledge of Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, and as a general scholar, a theologian, and a preacher, he stood eminent among the Methodist ministry of the day. He was a very useful man, a sincere Christian, and many souls were converted through his labors."-Minutes of Conferences, ii, 412; Geo. Peck,D.D., Early Methodism (N. Y. 1860, 12mo), p. 473. (G. L.
