Thanks for contacting us. The latch plate you need might be our 89-029. Look it over and tell me what you think.
A quick learner from USA says:
It certainly looks like that might be the right part, although that doesn't explain all the screw holes which do not seem necessary given the part shown.

What is the difference between that part and this one:

Hey, Bob. It's possible previous home owners used multiple different keepers over the years, requiring them to redrill installations holes each time. As for the 89-029 compared to the 89-041, they are each different sizes. You can see more detailed dimensions for each on their respective store pages.

I found a neighbor with the same door. Your suggestion looks like it might work but is not the same. Do you have this one?

Aha! That works. This keeper looks like an older version of our 89-024. Yours is of course much wider than ours, but I'm afraid we are unable to get anything in that exact size. Do you think you could get our 89-024 to work? Look over the holes currently drilled in your door, hopefully these line up.
A professional from CA says:
Line up as many as you can and just put the remaining screws in new holes. The old ones will probably end up behind the strike.
