He had been employed by the Swift & Hunt Carriage Company for several years. His first wife was Mary Burtt Smith of Townsend, his second being Miss Lizzie Wright, of Grafton, who survives with one son, Alson Harris, manager of the grange store, two step-children residing in Springfield, his two brothers, A.R.
