A City Founded on Compassion and Virtue
Notably, the city of Keokuk developed as a response to division. During the early 1800s, the U.S. Army had issued an order preventing its troops from marrying Native Americans.
Dr. Samuel C. Muir, a surgeon in the Army, had already wed a Native American woman he loved. Rather than comply with the order, he resigned from service and resettled on the other side of the Mississippi River. His family’s little cabin became the first non-Native settlement in what we now know as Keokuk, and others later followed suit.
In fact, over the years, it became known as something of a refuge for multiracial couples and their families. That tradition of tolerance and compassion continues to define the city’s culture to this day. It’s one of the reasons Mr. Pothitakis is proud to serve as a Workers’ Compensation lawyer.
In addition to the aforementioned Dr. Muir, a number of celebrities and other influential people have called Keokuk home over the years. They include:
- Howard Hughes
- Orion Clemens (Mark Twain’s brother)
- Bud Fowler (America’s first African-American professional baseball player)
- Supreme Court Justice Samuel Freeman Miller
- Rupert Hughes (Oscar-nominated creative & uncle to Howard Hughes)
- Edward Kimball (superstar of the silent film era)
- Elsa Maxwell (the famous socialite)
