Birth: 1788 Virginia, USA Death: Mar. 20, 1878

The Harrises were among the early settlers in the west part of the township, where their descendants still live. Morgan, Stephen and George Harris were the sons of Elijah (sic) Harris, a pioneer of Olive Township. George Harris was considered a good hunter in his day. He lived on the farm now owned by his son, Sampson. Morgan lived on the farm now owned by Alfred Harris. Stephen Harris, still living in West Virginia, at the age of eighty-nine, settled on the August Dimerling farm. George Harris had a camp on Middle Creek prior to 1812. He left it and went into the war against Great Britain. A stream which ran past his camp is still known as George's Run.
