  • Notes 
    • Harriet was an excellent housekeeper, mother, and wife. She had a fine team of horses and a surrey which she drove about town.

      Alexander was an industrious early Mormon Pioneer. He came west with his family at the age of 15, in 1848. Alex was willing to do any task that was asked of him by his leader, and was appointed to help the suffering Saints of the Handcart Company when they were stranded in the snow. He took blankets and food, and helped save many lives.

      The Harris' went to Richmond when that community was settled, and lived in the old log fort.

      During the Indian battle near Preston, Alex hauled some of the wounded soldiers to Salt Lake City.

      Alex and his oldest son, Alexander, Jr. operated a freight train of wagons from Corinne, Utah to Butte, Montana. They each had two wagons. They trailed behind one other, with 16 head of mules to each train. This was a strenuous trip over rocks and creeks. There were no roads. At that time there were many Indians and outlaws roaming the country, and they were always on the alert. It was on one of these trips that Harriet passed away, 15 September 1874 in Richmond, Cache, Utah. She was 40 years old. There was no way of carrying news, save by pony express, so a runner was sent to tell Alexander the sad news. His eldest son, Alex Jr.,(age 18) never quite recovered from the death of his dear mother.

      She left a family of seven children, the oldest being 18 years of age and the baby only 5 weeks old. Her oldest daughter, Harriet Ann, was 16.
