Fernando Keithley was killed by the Moros in the Philipines in November, 1903. In honor of his bravery an Army camp was named Camp Keithley January 16, 1905. Fernando Keithley was from Missouri. I have a copy of the General Orders No. 3 naming the camp in his honor. The copy of the General Orders was brought back from Camp Keithley by my father who served at Camp Keithley about the time it was renamed for Private Keithley. If anyone of his lineage is
interested I will send a copy. Please contact me by my E-mail.
