In 1858, Keith married Isabella Norvell, the daughter of John Norvell, who was one of Michigan's original U. S. senators. Keith's father, William Keith, commanded both naval and merchant ships. Angus Keith sailed the lakes for forty years and operated commercial vessels including lumber carriers for the Peshtigo Lumber Company.
