There's not an explicit link between the date of this and other events
in Abraham's life, except they were adults before Abraham's death. As
translated in NASB, the link between the previous chapter (marriage of
Isaac) and 25 seems the same as that between 11 and 12, but the
general claim that Abraham was too old to father Isaac would suggest
that Keturah was a concubine not previously mentioned despite being
chronologically earlier.
