PAST AND PRESENT OF KNOX COUNTY OHIO BY ALBERT B. WILLIAMS

JOHN CALVIN HARRIS..

One of the most painstaking and modern agriculturists of southeastern Knox county is John Calvin Harris, of near Bladensburg, Jackson township. He was fortunate in having good parents, who taught him from the start the duties of life—not ordinary instruction, but the higher duties which all owe to each other and to society. The result has been to give him broad ideas of life and its responsibilities and to fit him for upright and worthy citizenship..

Mr. Harris was born in Bladensburg, Ohio, August 10, 1856, and is the son of Jesse and Elizabeth (Holtz) Harris. The paternal grandparents, Elijah and Sarah Harris, were natives of Pennsylvania and they came to Ohio in a very early day. He was a farmer and he spent his last days here, becoming very well established through his industry, he and his wife dying in Clay township. He was a soldier in the war of 1812. The maternal grandparents, George and Susan Holtz, were also natives of Pennsylvania and from that state they, too, came to Knox county in pioneer times where they developed a good farm and spent the balance of their lives..

The parents of the subject were married in this county and here the father devoted his life to farming. He also conducted a tannery at Newcastle for a number of years, in connection with which he also did some farming. He lived a quiet and retired life. His family consisted of seven children, six of whom grew to maturity, and five of them are now living..

The death of Jesse Harris occurred on January 28, 1908, aged seventy- seven years, and his wife died on December 30, 1903, aged seventy-six years..
