MRS. NANCY CAROLINE HARRIS
An Interesting Life Reaching More
Than Four Score Years.-Sixty
Three Years in. Same House.
Mrs. Nancy Caroline Harris, reliet
of the late C. Martin Harris, died
at her residence in this eity Febru
ary 25, 1910. She was born Janu
ary 25, 1828, making her age 82
years and one month to the day.
There is a remarkable record in the
history of this venerable old lady.
Before mariage she was a Miss
Singley. A few years after her mar
riage to Mr. Harris they moved to
the place where -they lived until
death ended their long lives. Mr.
Harris died on the 10th of February,
1879. He was a well known old eit
izen of the town and had many
friends; especially did the little boys
like him because of his jovial na
ture. Their son, the late W. Hamp
ton Harris, died on the 4th of Janu
ary, 1907. He was a former efficient
and reliable Chief of Police, of New
berry, honored by the city. During
his incumbency of that important amnd
trying official position, it was his cus
tom regularly to wind -the city clock
and it is a well known fact that thE
lock stopped precisely at the how
of ;his death..
On through the years lived the old
widow and mother whose husband
and children had all preceded her t<
the silent grave on the borders ol
the spirit world, until at the end ol
tixty-three years she too left thE
-Bome which, so many years before;
she had entered as a young and hap
py wife. Sixty-three years of liv
ing without a change of earthly
abode, changed at last only for th(
heavenly. In that long ar. to hei
the place must~--indeed -..e bee
"one little home among the bushes
one that she loved." The town wa
a small place then and the littl(
home near the depot where Mrs
Harris lived so long .was always 2
famiia ' spot--the property ta
tending. through from Friend- street
- in which was the home, to west Main
n which was the cabinet shop wher
father and son worked at their trad
and exhibiled fine workmanship

spirit left the tired- and worn body
By rieason of strength she lived fa:
beyond the allotted three-score year.
and ten, showing wonderful vitalit3
and a remarkable clinginig to life
-She journeyed a long distance along
the road of the earthly pilgrimagt
from youth and" spring to old age
and winter, and gained the summi1
from whose shining heights few mor
tal eyes can look-but at last the .eni
here to her has .come, and she has
stopped by the way to rest and has
found the rock that is "a greal
shadow in a wearfj land,'' and,he:
tired feet feel no more the rough
ness of the way. Another soul has
sol.ved for itself . the mystery oJ
death, and life -beyond the grave.
*The last few remaining yea.rs o.i
Mrs.'Harris' life were soothed and
comforted by her .. daughter-in-law
Mrs. Annie R. Harris, daughter o:
'Mr. and Mrs. .J. Chesley DomiAick
