HEART TROUBLE FATAL TO PROMINENT BUSINESS MAN
Came to Jasper County 49 Years Ago
Funeral Services Are Held This Afternoon
Charles J. Harrison, 65 years old, a widely known business man of this city, died at 7:55 o'clock yesterday morning at the Harrison home, 703 Orner Street. Death was caused by heart trouble, from which he had suffered more or less for the last two years. He became very sick about six weeks ago and his condition was thought to be dangerous for a time, but his condition improved and three weeks ago was able to be out most of the time, although he was unable to attend to his regular work. For about the last two weeks he had been confined to his bed.
Mr. Harrison was born at Circleville, Ohio May 11, 1849. When he was 16 years old he came to Missouri with his parents, who settled on a farm northeast of Carthage and two years later moved to this city. For a time Mr. Harrison was employed as civil engineer on the Carthage and Western Railroad which ran from Pierce City to Brownsville, Kansas, and which is now a part of the Frisco road passing through this city. Later he was in the dry good business in this city for a considerable period. For the last fifteen years he had been associated with his brother J. Frank Harrison, in the lumber business.
Mr. Harrison was twice married. He was married April 15, 1875 to Miss Lizzie Woodmansee, who lived only a few years. On January 1, 1882 he was married to Miss Mary A. Gates, who survives him. The following children also survive:
Oscar E. Harrison
Mrs. Bertha Reed of Reed's Station, Missouri
Dixon Harrison and
Miss Julian Harrison, both of whom reside in the Harrison home in this city.
All the sons and daughters, except the first one named, are children of the surviving wife.
For thirty-four years Mr. Harrison had been an Odd Fellow, and long had been one of the leading members of the local lodge. He also was a member of the Maccabees and belong to the A.H.T.A. For many years he had been one of the leading members of the First Methodist Episcopal Church. In the early days of the church he was secretary of the Sunday school for a number of years. He was a devoted and consecrated Christian, who was highly esteemed by his fellow church members, lodge brothers, business associates and the large number of persons by whom he was known.
