George Harris

In the earliest days of Granville's history, back in 1766, Richard Harris made a deed of gift of land in the Salem section to his son, John. George Harris was a son of John and lived on that same land. George was a man not only of great piety but of unusual energy and ability. He built Harris meeting house, in which Bishop Asbury preached. According to A.A. Hicks, both Salem Church and Harris Chaped at Dabney were out growths of this chapel. George Harris and his wife Keziah had many children. Their youngest, Frances, married Dr. Samuel Duty. This marriage was not at all pleasing to one of Frances brothers, a minister, who violently disagreed on some theological point with the bridegroom, also a minister. The brother, so tradition has it prayed at a family gathering that no male child should bless the union to help to perpetuate the Duty name. The Rev. Mr. Harris must have been a righteous man, for his effectual, fervent prayer availed: the couple had thirteen children, and not a boy among them. All the eleven Duty girls who reached womanhood were school teachers at one time or another, and among their children, grandchildred, and great-grandchildren have been and still are numerous teachers, whose fields of operation extended or extend fram Massachusetts to California. A granddaughter of one of these Duty girls has taught in the Oxford public schoos for many years, as had her mother before her, and long before the present system of Oxford public schools was inaugurated, the grandmother of this present teacher taught in the old Oxford Female Academy. Salem folks have a right to be proud of their community. They have a right to proud of their ancestors who pioneered in the shaping of that community. They are proud of both. In the graveyard of their church, one of the best kept to be found anywhere, lie the remains of a large number of their forebears as well as of contemporary members of their families. This burying ground is hallowed spot, and which is dear to the hearts of a wide and everwidening circle. If the spirits of departed Salemites can look down upon the works of those they left behind, they too will find much of which to be proud. The present-day Salem folks are following the pattern laid out for them during the two centuries just past.
