Ten children survive him, seven of whom attended the funeral; on account of the distance the others were unable to be here.
His wife died several years ago. Mr. Harris was an honest upright man and his death will be missed by a wide circle of friends. The funeral was at the Methodist church last Friday and the interment at Minert cemetery.
