Harris, died here yesterday at 80 East Second North street, of old age and general debility. Mrs. Harris was born in Augusta, Ill., on September 25, 1844. She was a niece of the late Brigadier General John Fonda, one of the pioneer families of America. The Fonda family settled in New York state long before the Revolutionary war and came from Holland to America. When the Revolutionary war broke out sixty-one members of the Fonda family enlisted and nineteen of them were commissioned officers. They established the town of Fonda, New York, and this city still bears that name. Catherine Fonda and Thomas E. Harris were married in Augusta, Ill., July 4, 1865. Shortly after their marriage they moved West and settled in Boulder, Colorado. They lived there for about twenty years and then moved to Salt Lake City in 1889 and engaged in the undertaking business. Mr. Harris was a partner of E. G. O'Donnell and C. J. Ross. He was also elected coroner by the Liberal party for several terms in Salt Lake City. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary five years ago with a host of their friends on Salt Lake City. Mr. and Mrs. Harris had lived together for fifty-five years. About four years ago they moved to Provo and settled in a little home at the corner of Eighth North and Seventh East streets. Here they raised chickens and a fine garden until early this year, when they moved to the present home on East Second North street. Mrs. Harris is survived by her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Corrinne Harris Masters, and four brothers and two sisters. Another daughter, Genevieve Smith, died several years ago in Edmonton, Canada. Mrs. Harris was a member of the Episcopal church and a lover of animals and pets. The funeral will be held Wednesday in the Episcopal church church at 10:30 a.m. and the remains may be viewed at the residence from 9 until 10:15 the day of the funeral. The body will be sent to Salt Lake City, where interment will be made in the family plot in Mt. Olivet cemetery. Salt Lake Telegram (Salt Lake City, UT), Monday, December 6, 1920] >> <<
