I found several references to USS KEOKUK in several different classes of ships.Certainly you are not a veteran of the Civil War single-turret monitor USS KEOKUK.
There is a currently serving KEOKUK which is a Yard Tug.
During WW2 there was a USS KEOKUK AKN-4 which was an net cargo ship damaged at Iwo Jima of 21FEB445.
I regret that I could not find any reference to USS KEOKUK as a minelayer.
