The Lewiston Democrat says of him: "The death of this honored, influential, public spirited citizen, in the prime of his life, and in the midst of his usefulness, constitutes the severest loss our city has experienced. We do not know a citizen who could not as least have been as well spared. He was the leading merchant, member of the school board, and for the past 25 years has been identified with the growth and welfare of his city and community. A public meeting was called by the mayor of Lewiston when learning of his death by telegraph, and resolutions befitting the demise of this noble man were passed. The funeral was largely attended, and Mr. Harris was generally mourned by all its citizens." Both Geo. and Miss Lucy Harris attended the obsequies.  --Source:  The Henry Republican, Henry, Ill., June 15, 1882; contributed by Nancy Piper.
