She had taught school for nine years before coming to California At the close of their work they were united in marriage on June 18, 1895, at Riverside, by Rev. A. W. Jamison, then of Wildomar. After visiting a number of places of interest along the coast, they returned East, stopping at Salt Lake City, Denver, Manitou Springs, Pike's Peak, Omaha and Chicago, arriving at the bride's home in West Virginia, July 31, 1895.

Biography* Samuel Mealey... was born on the 1st of May, 1782, in Carlisle, Pa., and was one of seven children. His early years were spent on a farm in West Virginia which his father had obtained with money received for his services in the Revolution. He received liberal educational advantages and was graduated from William and Mary's College where he was a schoolmate of Gen. Scott. He then studied medicine in Philadelphia and embarked in the practice of his chosen profession in Pennsylvania. During the war of 1812, in which he served in the One Hundred Twenty-second Pennsylvania Regiment, he became one of the principal surgeons on the northern frontier. Like his father he was a faithful soldier and participated in the battle of Lundy's Lane, Eric and Black Rock. The year 1840 witnessed his arrival in the Territory of Iowa. He made a location in Duck Creek Township, Washington County; where he purchased five thousand acres of land. He was worth some $40,000- a great amount in that day. In 1852 he sold his land to his son and removed to Brighton, where his death occured February 17, 1875.

In Pennsylvania, Mr. Mealey was united in marriage with Miss Margaret Blaine, whose father was Ephraim Blaine, a native of Scotland and an officer in the British Army before he emigrated to America. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Long Island at the same time that Lawrence M. Mealy, tha paternal grandfather of our subject, was captured. Mrs. Mealey was a great- aunt of the illustrious James G. Blaine. Her death also occurred in Brighton at the age of seventy-nine years.

Excerpt from: Early Medical History of Washington County, Iowa:

The Village of Lexington ---Samuel Mealey, so far as there is any record, was the first medical man present. His location is not known. In about 10 years he moved to Brighton.

Samuel Mealey was born in Harrisville, Virginia, son of Lawrence Mealey, May 3 probably 1780. He was a classmate in William and Mary's College of Winfield Scott; graduated from Jefferson Medical College, was a surgeon in the War of 1812, associated with General Winfield Scott, whose wounds he dressed after the Battle of Queenstown Heights near Niagra. He often told this story to his grandchildren asking them to always remember he had cared for General Scott.

He came to Dutch Creek Township in 1846 -- exact location is not known. It seems he moved to Brighton. He educated two sons for the practice. William located in Des Moines, gave promise of great usefulness but died in 1864. Thomas was apparently associated with his father in Brighton during the Cholera epidemic of 1853. The elder Mrs. Mealey died. One accord tells us that Samuel Mealey left Brighton, going to Keokuk, where he practiced or when he returned, I do not know. I do know he died in Brighton in his 92 year, Feb. 1870 and is buried in the Brighton Cemetery.3

He took an active part in the war between the States and was on the Union side. At the end of the war he was made a Major General by brevet. He had served as a Brigadier General during the war. When Lincoln was assassinated the army chose a military commission to try those that were supposed to have conspired with Booth. Uncle Thomas was a member of the commission. (When I graduated from High School he gave me a book he had written concerning the trial and what led to the conspiracy.) He would have been court-martialed had he refused to serve on the commission.6

LETTER FROM GEN. THOMAS M. HARRIS
(From TRANSALLEGHENY HISTORICAL MAGAZINE, VOL. I NO. 2)
Submitted by Dean Six

Dear Sir,

Replying to your letter of the 16 ins., I will say that I was born in the
then County of Wood, State of Virginia, on the 17 of June, 1813, and within
600 yards of where I now write. I write by a ruler to keep me in line and
do not see a word that I write, but with the eye of my mind. My
grandfather, Lawrence Mealey, was from Ireland and moved from Rockbridge
Co., Va., to this place with his wife and eight children in 1803. They
came on horses and on foot bringing with them their cattle, sheep, &c., and
settled within a mile of the present site of Harrisville, his nearest
neighbor being at the present site of Pennsboro, 8 miles distant. As other
settlers came on it took the name of Mealey's Settlement. This settlement
in 1823, from which my recollection is very distinct, occupied an area of
about 9 square miles and contained about 20 families. Most of these were
from the County of Harrison, Va., 4 or 5 families were from Western
Pennsylvania, 3 or 4 from the Eastern Virginia, and 2 from England. This
was the first settlement made in the bounds of the present County of
Ritchie, and the first school was taught by Thomas Mealey about the year
1818. George H. Rogers taught the next term of three months and this was
the first school that I attended. Ayers taught another term of three
months on the following summer. After those we had 3 months winter term
every year. The school was taught in a hewn log house about 18X20 feet,
that had been built and was used for a church, and was lighted in the usual
style of the schoolhouses of that day by pasting oiled paper over a large
crack between the logs that had been cut out for that purpose. The seats
were benches made of slabs by boring holes and driving into them legs.
These were so high from the floor that the feet of the smaller children
could not reach it. Webster's spelling book was the only book that was
used for several of the first terms that were taught. After that the
English reader was introduced, and then the English Reader and Pike's
Arithmetic. This was succeeded by Walsh's Arithmetic. The teachers were
scarcely competent to teach these elementary branches, and I was 18 years
old before I knew a competent instructor. This was a Scotchman by the name
of Thos. Cumming. I only enjoyed the advantage of his instruction for 3
months. I commenced to teach myself when 18 years old and very poorly
qualified. It was not until about 1825 that schools began to be opened in
other neighborhoods of the now territory of Ritchie County and all under
the same disadvantageous circumstances that I have described. I am,

Very respectfully yours,

T.M. Harris

Gen. Harris Is Claimed By Death

Passes Away At Harrisville At Age Of 93 - One Of Commonwealth's Most Remarkable Figures

Silenced Last Battery Of Gen. Robt. E. Lee

Soldier of the Union in the Republic's Rebellion He Fought Valiantly for His Country's Honor - In the Time of Peace, a Statesman - He Was One of the Last Survivors of the Commission Which Tried Conspirators in Assassination of Lincoln - Served in West Virginia Legislature, and Was a Practicing Physician - Retained His Strong Faculties Until the End.

General Thomas Maley Harris, aged 93 years and 3 months, died yesterday morning at eleven o'clock at his home at Harrisville, where he was born and reared, and where he spent the most of the years of a most remarkable career. He had been ill about a month. His illness and death were due to a general breakdown, incident to old age. The end came peacefully in the midst of a deep sleep into which he had fallen a few hours earlier.

General Harris was one of the commonwealth's foremost citizens and in many respects its most remarkable character. To his lot it fell as an officer of the Union in the late rebellion to silence the last battery of General Lee at Appomattox; to him it fell in the peace of the nation, and after that tragedy which cost the nation its president, to sit as one of the commission to try the conspirators in the assassination of Lincoln. These two notable acts stand out most conspicuously in his career which was so full of incidents that it would require volumes to record his biography.

During his last illness, and in spite of the fact that he had attained the remarkable age of 93 years, he retained his faculties until the last. He frequently discussed his own physical condition with his son, John T. Harris, or with other relatives, and talked about the matters that interested him by the hour.

His mind never failed and he never wavered. He was the same staunch patriot when he died who fought for the Union in the sixties; the body had weakened but the same powerful spirit still prevailed.

Saturday he seemed to have improved though last week he seemed wavering between life and death. On Saturday night John T. Harris returned to Parkersburg to spend Sunday.

Yesterday afternoon at three o'clock he received a message announcing his father's death. Death had occurred just shortly before noon. In the morning the aged general had taken nourishment for the first time in a week. He feel [sic] into a deep sleep from which he never awakened.

The funeral will be held from the home on Wednesday afternoon at one o'clock. The announcement of his death caused deep regret in this city where General Harris was well-known, and respected and loved by all who enjoyed the honor of his acquaintance.

General Thomas Maley Harris was born June 17, 1813, near what is now Harrisville, Ritchie county. He received a limited education in the subscription schools of that day and spent one term at Marietta College. He taught school afterwards, pursuing the study of medicine at the same time. He was assistant principal in the boys' department in the old Hanks Academy in Parkersburg, in the early forties. While holding that position he married Sophia Taylor Hall, principal of the girls' department, who had come from Massachusetts to teach in the school. Afterwards he attended Louisville Medical College, and in about 1843 he was practicing medicine in his old home neighborhood in Ritchie county. He continued in that practice from 1843 until 1856, when he removed to Glenville, Gilmer county, where he practiced until 1861.

Politically he was an old line Whig and was opposed to the ordinance of secession. When the war broke out he was authorized by Governor Pierpont, upon the recommendation of General Rosecrantz, to whom he had rendered valuable service, to raise a regiment of troops. After the regiment had been partially recruited he received a commission as lieutenant colonel, and when the full quota of men had been enlisted he was commissioned colonel. The regiment was the Tenth Virginia, afterwards known as the Tenth West Virginia. He served with his regiment in West Virginia until the summer of 1864, except for a short time, when he was with General Milroy at Winchester in the winter of 1862.

At the time of the Hunter raid he was ordered with his regiment from Beverly to the valley of Virginia, where he served under General Franz Seigel [sic] and afterwards under General Sheridan, being attached to the Eighth corps, or what was known as the Army of West Virginia, commanded by General George Crooks [sic]. He participated in all the heavy fighting in the valley in the summer and fall of 1864, as brigade and division commander. For gallant conduct at the battle of Cedar Creek he was breveted a brigadier general.

At the close of the valley campaign he was in command of a division which was afterwards transferred to Grant's army in front of Richmond, and was known as the independent division of the Twenty-fourth army corps, army of the James, at which time he received a commission as brigadier general. He was in the heavy fighting in front of Petersburg in the spring of 1865, at Hatcher's Run and other points long the line, and his command stormed Fort Whitworth and captured it after a desperate fight. At Appomattox he was immediately in front of Lee's advance line and he sent out a company of sharp shooters under command of the late Capt. Kirkpatrick, of Wetzel county, that silencer [sic] the last battery that Lee every put in position.

After the assassination of Abraham Lincoln he was ordered to Washington and detailed as a member of the military commission that tried the conspirators under arrest there. This commission was composed of Generals David H. Hunter, Lew Wallace, August V. Kautz, Albion P. Howe, Robert S. Foster, James A. Elkin, T. M. Harris, Brevet Colonel C. H. Tompkins and Lieutenant Colonel David R. Clendening. All are now dead, with the possible exception of General Foster and Colonel Tompkins. In 1892 he wrote a book giving an account of the conspiracy and a history of the trial of those engaged in it.

After the work of the commission was over General Harris was placed in command of the department of Northern Virginia with headquarters at Fredericksburg, where he remained until early in 1866, having been commissioned a major general by brevet in the meantime.

Upon being mustered out of service General Harris returned to his old home in Ritchie county.

Edwin M. Stanton, secretary of war, in recognition of his services in the field tendered General Harris the lieutenant colon[el]cy of the Thirty-seventh regulars, but the appointment was declined on account of age.

He was elected from Ritchie county to the legislature in 1867. He was appointed adjutant general of the state under Governor Stevenson, and afterwards was commissioned by President Grant as United States pension agent at Wheeling, which place he held a number of years, and until the agency was abolished, after which he returned to Ritchie county, and resumed the practice of medicine, which he followed until about 1885, since which time he has lived a quiet life at his home near Harrisville. His wife died in September, 1885. He was married again in 1888 to Miss Clara Maley of Iowa. Four children were born to the first marriage - Martha A., who married Rev. J. R. Johnston, pastor of the United Presbyterian church at Washington, Pa.; Mary Virginia, who died in early womanhood; Agnes, who died in infancy, and John T. Harris, who now resides in Parkersburg.

From early manhood General Harris was a devoted and consistent member of the United Presbyterian church. He was the oldest citizen of Ritchie county, born in the county. He was a man of strong mind, deep convictions, great will power, kindly in his disposition, charitable and generous beyond measure and full of love for his fellowman.

Last winter an effort was made to place all volunteer officers who had become brigade or division commanders during the war on a volunteer retired list. General Green B. Raum, commissioner of Internal revenue under President Grant, was in charge of the measure, and in making up his list of those who would become beneficiaries it was developed that General Harris was the oldest surviving brigade and division commander of the volunteer service, and the only one living in West Virginia, Generals Kelley, Lightburn, Duval, Lockwood, Snider and other having all passed away.

MotherAnna Warner
Biography* From the History of Hampshire County, West Virginia: from its earliest settlement to the present:

John Switzer or Swisher, as he name had come to be called, the father of David Warner Swisher, was married in 1811 to Catherine Trout. To them were born thirteen children; Mary, Anna, Elizabeth, John , Sarah, Jacob, Margaret, David, George, Henry, Samuel, Rebecca, and William. Of these Mary married John Koiner, Anna married Joseph Spore, Elizabeth married William Henderson, Sarah married Jacob Swisher, Margaret married Stuart Bennett, and Rebecca married Taylor Parker.

Upon the death of his first wife, John Swisher married Mary Grow, and two children, Daniel and James Swisher were born to them. The descendants of the Swisher family are now scattered to almost every State of the Union, and in nearly every instance their habits of industry and perseverance have won for them the respect of their fellows and an honorable place in society.
