G. T. HARRIS was born October 3, 1866, in Caldwell County, Ky., near Princeton. His father, John H. Harris, is a native of Caldwell County, Ky., born April 8, 1838; his mother, Sarah J. (Rice) Harris, is a native of Christian County, Ky., and is a descendant of Daniel Boone. They are the parents of six children, of whom our subject is the second, and the only son. George T. Harris received his education in the school at Dycusburg, where, in the summer of 1884, he turned his attention to journalism, and is now editor and proprietor of the Dycusburg Herald, a five-column, eight-page paper. Mr. Harris has never served an apprenticeship at printing, but through his own tact and skill, has acquired some proficiency in the trade.
