    Death's Harvest
    Grim Reaper before whose Scythe we all must fall Enters three Fitchburg Homes.

    Ebenezer Harris, for many years a resident of this city, and one of the older representatives of the men whose work in the chair shops made the name of Fitchburg famous for many years, died on Saturday at his home 28 Forrest street. Mr. Harris had been in failing health for some time and for a year was especially poorly. THe certificate of death gives for the cause heart disease and disease of the lungs.
    Mr. Harris was born in Cooperstown, N. Y., son of Jonathan and Sally (Howe) Harris, on Sept. 6, 1830, and consequently was a few days over 74 years. He was one of 12 children of his parents and but one survives, Mrs. Calvin Baker of Gardner. He lived in Winchendon during his younger days. He enlisted in Co. D of Worcester, 15th Massachusetts regiment, and in the battle of Ball's Bluff was wounded in the face and laid out in the exposure of the weather for a long time before he was picked up. Out of this he contracted rheumatism that impaired his health the rest of his life. After he was discharged from his first enlistment though twice rejected, he insisted on enlisting again, and as men were sorely needed he was accepted, this time in Co. G of Gardner, 53d regiment. He saw only hospital duty, being unable for more severe service.
    He came to this city after the war, and was a band sawyer for the Heywood chair shops till they shut down and had, as long as he was able, worked at his calling in the Bartlett toyshops of Leominster.


    He was a member of Post 19 and of the Highland Baptist church. He married on April 28, 1852, Miss Elizabeth S. Jordan of Mason Village, N. H. She survives him.
