    Notes 
    • Keith grew up in Trail, Oklahoma, across the river from Camargo. His family moved often while he was growing up He worked as a blacksmith and welder.

      At the time of the 1930 Federal census, he was a Lodger in the home of Eulalie Fayard in Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi. He was shown as Male, Single, born in Oklahoma with his parents born in Alabama and Kansas. Occupation was that of a Telephone Lineman.
      (Source Citation: Bay Saint Louis, Hancock, Mississippi; Roll: 1146; Page: 1A; Enumeration District: 0005; Image: 125.0; FHL microfilm: 2340881.)

      Keith owned a 1940 Aeronca TL Trainer two place tandem seat air plane, in which he died after a crash on January 4, 1948. He had been assisting some local ranchers who were eradicating coyotes in the area. His son, Keith McGuire, Jr. recalls that his father "occasionally, and not for hire, would fly in areas where local farmers/ranchers that he knew were hunting Coyotes, and would serve as a spotter for those on the ground." Keith Jr was riding with hi s Dad in the plane that day until shortly before his Dad's death, which was just after noon, 12 PM.

      Coyote Hunting using airplanes were accomplished by two means at that time. One was where a second person riding with the pilot would shoot coyotes while in the air from the airplane. The other was where Ranchers on horses using Greyhound Dogs to corner the coyotes would sometimes be assisted by a pilot in a plane serving as a spotter to designate where coyotes were by a maneuver , usually wagging the planes wings in flight when they flew over an area where they saw coyotes. Keith reported that his father did this strictly for the sport, and not for hire.

      There was not enough room in the church for all the mourners at his funeral , which was typical for all funerals in small towns in that time era. Kenneth Carpenter was one the eight honorary pallbearers at Keith's funeral, there being six active pallbearers. Josephine and Kenneth were married some eight years after the funeral.

      The funeral director was Mr. Shaw of Vici, Oklahoma.
