HARRIS - Mr. James T. Harris one of Stanford's oldest and best citizens, died in the Odd Fellows' lodge of hemorrhage of the lungs about 9 o'clock Tuesday night. He attended lodge as usual and during the session became ill. Dr. Carpenter was sent for but the patient was beyond human aid and he died in a few moments. The remains were taken to his home on Logan Avenue where at 10 o'clock yesterday morning Rev. J. W. Hagin preached a splendid funeral sermon. After the services were concluded the Odd Fellows took charge and the burial in Buffalo cemetery was under the auspices of that order. Two children, Mrs. Smith, of Lexington, and Mrs. Sacray, of Midway, and his splendid wife survive Mr. Harris and in their great loss they have the unbounded sympathy of the community.
For many years Mr. Harris conducted a store here and later engaged in the harness and saddlery business and in both lines he was reasonably successful. He was an honorable, upright christian gentleman and will be greatly missed by the legion of friends he leaves.
Mr. Harris was a galiant Mexican soldier and is the last save two of the gentlemen of this county who fought for that cause.
Deceased was 74 years old and had lived the greater part of his life in Stanford where he was admired and respected by all. The following relatives from a distance attended the burial: J. K. and G. H. Nunnelley, Georgetown; Sam Nunnelley, Chilesburg; Henry Nunnelley, Winchester; Mesdames Smith, of Lexington, and Sacray, of Midway, and Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Brown, of Somerset.
