The Montezuma Valley Journal (Cortez, CO):

Prominent Dolores Banker Dies Thursday

One of the early settlers in Montezuma county and for many years a prominent banker in Dolores, Andrew F. Harris passed away at his home there last Thursday. Since 1891 he had been a resident of Dolores, Mitchell Springs, the forerunner of the town of Cortez, and Mancos where the Harris brothers, Andrew and John had first located upon coming to this part of the state. As a molder of the financial structure of the county, Mr. Harris was quite closely connected with the growth and development of the region. Only a brief account of that is given in the obituary read at the funeral services held at the home Sunday afternoon. Nevertheless he will long be remembered for his useful services.


Andrew F. Harris was born in Bloomingville, Ohio, March 25th, 1854, and died in Dolores, Colorado, January 3rd 1935, being 80 years, 7 months and 8 days of age. He came west in 1879 and settled in Denver for a short time. In June 1880, he joined his brother, John J. in a business venture at Salida and built the first house in that town before the railroad was built to that coming city. When the railroad was built across Marshall Pass, they followed the railroad to Gunnison where they engaged in business for some time. Later they sold their business at Gunnison and drifted around for about two years finally settling in Mancos in December 1885, they conducted a general store. Later they moved to Mitchel Springs south of the present townsite of Cortez and before Cortez was settled as a town. In June 1887 they moved to what was then known as “The Big Bend” on the Dolores River or the old town of Dolores. In 1891 they moved to the new town or present Town of Dolores where he resided at the time of his death. He was married to Leila M. Parker August 21st 1918. Two children were born to them; Dolores and Andrew F. Junior. His wife, two children, and brother John J. survive him.

Mr. Harris was of a very quiet disposition and longed to live his life in his own quiet way without interference on the part of others and was quite willing that others should enjoy the same privilege. He was a great lover of his home and was rarely seen away from home after business hours. He believed in the simple life and requested that this simplicity be carried out in his funeral arrangements. He and his brother had much to do with the development of the Montezuma Valley and the town of Dolores.

The only fraternal organization to which he belonged was the Elks Lodge; in this organization he held a life certificate.

OXFORD, Sept. 8, 1884

ED. REGISTER:–The sad news passed through the community Saturday last that little Charlie Harris was dead, and would be buried yesterday. We were not prepared to believe the report, for it seemed impossible that so bright a lad as Charlie should be called away, when there were so many other children, leading worthless lives, that seemingly could have been spared so easily; but the report was only too true, and yesterday witnessed the concluding chapter in the history of little Charlie, whose life had been snuffed out in its bloom and career of usefulness cut short in the beginning of the race. Charlie Harris was eleven years old, but in that brief time his loving, noble qualities had won a big place in the hearts of all who fell in his way, and no one knew him but to love him and speak his praise. He was a faithful attendant in Miss Worthington’s class in Bloomingville Sunday School where he learned those truths of religion, which, coupled with his fine, sensitive nature gave him noble qualities which are so seldom met with in boys of his age. An immense concourse of people assembled at the Sand Hill church to join in the sad funeral rites which were conducted by Rev. Mr. Burnell, of Clyde.

Mr. Harris retired in 1975 as a machinist at the Urschel Machine Co., Bowling Green. In early years, he was employed at the Buick factory in Flint, Mich., and was a mechanic for Division 2 of what was then called the Ohio Highway Department.

Mr. Harris maintained a machine shop in his garage, doing his own automobile and home repair work. He did general repair shop work until a year ago, his wife said.

Born in the Wood County community of Mermill, he attended Bowling Green High School. He was a member and former deacon of First Baptist Church, Bowling Green, and attended the Zuriel Sunday school class.

Death of Wm. H. Harris

A. F. Harris received a telegram yesterday saying his brother, Wm. H. Harris at Seattle, Wash., had died at 11:55 o’clock Wednesday night. John J. is hastening on as fast as steam can carry him and will arrive sometime today, only to find that death has proceeded him.

Wm. H. Harris was 59 years of age and is the first of seven brothers and two sisters, whom death has claimed. The cause was paralysis, of a nature that increases continually the more a patient moves, and it had reached a state where death was a relief. While the brothers and sisters deeply regret the loss, they feel that it is for the best, as his suffering is over. Besides six brothers and two sisters, he leaves a wife and four children.

Mr. Harris will be remembered by many here, having visited his two brothers about seven years ago. He was also well known in several sections of Colorado, where he was identified with its advancement in an early day.

The Sandusky Daily Register (OH) – Thursday, 5-11-1916:


Death is again in our midst and has claimed another pioneer, one of the oldest of Groton township. Mrs. Rosannah Underhill was born in Erie county, O., July 18, 1845. She was united in marriage to Seth Livengood, of Groton township, in 1861, who preceded her to the grave 37 years ago, leaving her with four small children to battle life’s journey alone. Her entire life with the exception of four years, was spent in this community. She was a good mother, a charitable woman, always lending a helping hand to those in need, and taking an active part in the work of the church, as far as was possible.After patient suffering for eight months, she departed this life, April 30, 1916, age 70 years and 14 days, at the home of her son Seth, where loving hands administered to her during her last hours. She leaves four sons, Jay of Sandusky and D.T., Seth E. and Charles, of this place, six grandchildren and a host of friends to mourn their loss.

From our home has gone a mother dear,

We miss her from her place, we do not see her here.

But yet we sometimes feel, her presence hovers o’er us,

And by the word of God, we know, she’s only gone before us.

So we will work, and watch, and wait until the call shall come,

For us to leave this scene of grief and hasten to our home;

Then through the Savior’s love revealed, we’ll reach the other shore,

To meet and never more to part, from her who went before.
