"Edward Harris, one of the Smith Township's successful farmers, is a native of the State of Georgia, and a son of W. M. and Lucinda Scaggin [i.e., Scoggin], also originally from that State.

”W. M. Harris moved to Mississippi in 1840 and in 1859 to Crittenden County, Ark. Three years later he came to this county, where he died in 1876. His wife survived until 1879, leaving at her death eight children, three of whom are living.

”Edward Harris was born in 1832 and remained with his parents until their demise, passing his youth in a manner similar to the early days of other boys. In 1881 he was married to Miss Mary Anderson, daughter of William and Timby Anderson, all natives of Alabama.

”Mr. Harris enlisted in the Confederate army, in 1862, in the Twenty-third Arkansas Infantry and served through the war, his career as a soldier being one to which he may refer with pride. Himself and wife are the parents of two children. Mr. Harris owns a fine farm of 222 acres, with about thirty acres under cultivation. He is a member of the Masonic order. His wife belongs to the Baptist Church"

Ed Harris and Mollie Anderson Harris both have grave markers in Harris Chapel Cemetery, Cross Co AR.
