Obituary published in the

Ritchie Gazette, April 3 [5], 1918

Mrs. Harris Dead

Mrs. Clara Maley Harris, second wife of General Thomas M. Harris, died April 1st. Thus has closed the history of one of Harrisville's honored and influential families. For many years General Harris was perhaps Harrisville's most noted citizen. Both in military life and in civil affairs he was a trusted and honored leader, with a country wide reputation.

Mrs. Harris was born near Harrisville, then Wood county. her grandfather died in 1808 and was buried on what is now the Cannon farm, one mile east of Harrisville. The first court in this part of the country was held in her father's home April 4, 1843--75 years ago.

She was the youngest and last survivor of twelve children. While still very young her parents moved to Western Illinois, long before railroads were built. The hardships of such a journey and of the pioneer life of that early day must have been far beyond what we can now understand. Soon her mother died, but she remained near Monmouth, Illinois, with the rest of the family until her marriage to General Harris in 1888. Since then her home has been in this neighborhood, in the beautiful place well known to all the residents of Harrisville and the surrounding country.

Mrs. Harris was in many ways a superior woman. She did not remember when she did not love her Savior. He an unknown person father was an officer in the Church, and the family life was ordered to the spiritual as well as the physical and intellectual growth of the children.

The funeral services were held from the Harris residence on Wednesday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. E. E. Cleland, pastor of the United Presbyterian Church, to which Mrs. Harris and her late husband had always belonged, assisted by the other ministers of the town. The music was in charge of Mrs. Trevey.3,9,4

Biography* William Bickett Barr gives his biogrraphy:
Rev. Barr was born November 11, 1851, near McAlevy's Fort, Pennsylvania.
[ I would prefer that another's pen might trace this section of our history. Modesty teaches me that I should not deviate from the practice of the use of the third person of the pronoun in inditing the record of my own life.]
He lived on the farm and attended the district schools until he was fifteen years old; he then entered the select school afterward organized as Stone Valley Academy, for four years.
He entered Westminster College, New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, in 1870, and graduated from the same institution in June, 1875; attended the Theological Seminary at Allegheny, Pennsylvania, and Xenia, Ohio, graduating from the former in April, 1878.
He was licensed to preach the gospel by Big Spring Presbytery, in April, 1878, and ordained and installed by Butler Presbytery June 10, 1879, as pastor of Springfield United Presbyterian congregation. This call he accepted in January, on condition that he be permitted to start a mission church at Pine Grove, six miles distant (now known as Grove City). In March, 1879, he began work at Pine Grove, and organized i* by direction of Presbytery September 1, 1879, with thirty-one members. He.was installed pastor over this congregation in connection with Springfield, August 6, 1880. It grew rapidly, and had the elements of a successful church. During this settlement he partially rebuilt, changed, and beautified the church building at Springfield; and built a new church at Pine Grove in 1882, costing almost six thousand dollars, which would seat five hundred people.
He resigned this charge in May, 1885, to accept a unanimous call from the New Brighton congregation, leaving one hundred and forty-five members in each congregation. They then became two separate charges. He began the work at New Brighton in May, 1885, and was installed July 14, 1885, by Beaver Valley Presbytery. During this pastorate he built a new church at New Brighton, costing fifteen thousand dollars; built a new church for mission purposes in Fallston, on the other side of the river, under the direction of the New Brighton congregation. He was also made chairman of the building committee to erect a new church at Ellwood City, under the direction of Beaver Valley Presbytery, in the summer of 1891, costing twenty-eight hundred dollars, which was dedicated without debt, although there was no congregation there at the time, and the town was just starting. He resigned the New Brighton church October i, 1891, to accept a very hearty call from First United Presbyterian Church, Xenia, Ohio, leaving the church with three hundred and fifteen members, and closing one of the most successful six years' work of his life.
He entered upon the work at Xenia in November, 1891, and resigned December 17, 1892, to enter upon evangelistic and missionary work, having been strongly urged to do so, and receiving many calls from brethren for that kind of work. It was a kind of work of which he had made a special study, and in which he found much pleasure during all the years of his ministry.
After holding meetings in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan, he received an invitation to take charge of Dr. Irvine's congregation, at Albany, Oregon, for a few months, he being laid aside with inflammatory rheumatism. This he accepted, and left his home at New Brighton March 4, 1893, for Oregon, where he remained for six months, holding meetings in Portland, Albany, Willamette, and Shedds, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington. Over one hundred were added to the churches that spring.
On September 5th he left for California, accompanied by his wife. After holding meetings in a few places in California, he was invited to take charge of the First Los Angeles congregation, which had just split, the pastor having gone out of it and formed the second church. The work was so broken up, the people were so discouraged, and the field so occupied with other large, flourishing churches, that it looked like a hopeless undertaking to try to build up the congregation again. But having received an urgent request from the congregation, and also from the Presbytery, to undertake the work, he consented to remain for the winter and do what he could for them. He remained there a year and nine months, and during that time under the divine blessing the church increased from forty-two to ninety-eight members, and the work was entirely reorganized. The Chinese mission, which had been under the care of Dr. Nevin, and was disbanded by him because he felt he could no longer carry on the work, was reorganized and started in a new building, which was bought by the Chinese boys and modernized. He baptized three Chinese from heathenism before leaving, also administered the Lord's Supper to them. This mission has doubled since it was reorganized. He endeavored to put the congregation into shape to call a pastor permanently, as they had from their organization been served by stated supplies. This they did after he left, and have continued to flourish.
He decided to return East, and closed his work July 1, 1895. On his return East he preached a few places along the way. Stopping over at Chicago for a few days, he occupied the Third United Presbyterian Church pulpit, which was vacant, and from which he afterward received a very urgent call, which he declined, having begun work at Middletown, Ohio.
This was a new church just started by the Presbytery of First Ohio, which, with the aid of the young people's societies of the presbytery, had erected a neat church building in a suitable location. An application from presbytery was awaiting him on his return East, to take hold of this field. He decided to remain for the winter as supply, and do what he could for them and test the field. Having received forty-seven members during the winter, he consented to a call being made, which was accepted at the June meeting of presbytery, 1896. He was installed over Middletown church September, 1896. Here he remained until December 1, 1898, when he resigned to accept a unanimous call to the First United Presbyterian Church, Hoboken, New Jersey, where he is at present enjoying the work. During his stay at Middletown the debt was reduced from two thousand to four hundred dollars, many improvements made about the church, the congregation increased from eleven to eighty members, and all the departments of work well organized. Of those received into the church by profession, almost all were baptised, and very few of the members were raised in the United Presbyterian faith. But a more loyal little church it would be difficult to find.
He has nothing to say of himself in all that has been accomplished, but points to Him who giveth the increase and says, "See what God hath wrought;" to whom be all the glory. Rev. Barr has always taken an active part in the reform movements of the day. He has voted the Prohibition ticket since 1879, and so is of age as a prohibition voter; and until he sees some reason to change, will continue to vote this ticket. He was nominated for Congress in 1884 by Mercer County, Pennsylvania, a strong temperance county. May God in his time give victory to the right.
Rev. Barr was married twice. His first marriage was to Miss Mary Alice Cummins, daughter of Sterrett and Agnes (McNitt) Cummins, of Stone Valley, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, by Rev. John M. Adair, assisted by Rev. Robert W. Kidd, June 22, 1876. She was born May 24, 1853. They were brought up in the same church, went to the same academy, and knew each other from childhood.

Death*  
Name Variation Edmund 
Note* Probable other children of Edmond and Mary: (theory from Ann Holladay) :

Flora Ann Franklin, who married Daniel A. Grogan in Wood Co., VA in 1836 or 37.

Eliza Franklin who married James Ryon in Mason Co. in 1835.

Margaret J. Franklin, who married Thomas M. Butcher in Wood Co., in 1845. (note that a Bejamin F. Butcher, age 4, was enumerated with Edmond and Mary Franklin in 1850 - so they may have been raising their grandson after Margaret's death).

The 1830 census suggests that Edmond and Mary and 3 daughters. In 1840, 1 young female is still at home. Evidence is circumstantal, but reasonably strong, that Flora, Eliza, and Margaret are those daughters.; Principal=Mary M. Roseberry2
