Noted Congregational Minister Dead
At Age of 78 After Fifty-one Years
Of Church Service

Rev. Sheldon A. Harris, who died on Tuesday, was born at Kinsway Creek, Pa., on February 2, 1852. He came to Chicago when he was 13 years old and on September 4, 1869, was married to Marie Andre.
Five Children were born to them, four of whom survive, Rev. Edward A. Harris and Mrs. W. G. Thom of Chicago, Mrs. G. W. Dodge of Elboro, Saskatchewan, Canada, and Rev. R. A. Harris of Oak Park. Walter Allen died in infancy.
In early manhood Mr. Harris worked in the drygoods store of Henry Harrison and in 1876 began to study for the Christian ministry. His first experience in preaching was in the church, now known as Fourth Congregational church of Chicago, and at Oswego, Ill. In 1883 he was ordained in Beecher, Ill., where he was pastor for seven years.
Successive pastorates were at Byron, Villa Ridge, Millburn, Dwight, Elmwood, Chebonae, Centralia, and Danville, making 51 years of ministry in the state of Illinois. Eight years ago he went to Florida, but after two years returned to make his home with his son at 1012 Augusta.
His Unusual vigor continued up to within the last few years. He died following an operation which he was unable to withstand. He was affiliated with Third Congregational church of Oak Park and Borrowed Time club. His enthusiasm and energy were unbounded and his strength of character was unquestioned. Gathered around him, besides his sons and daughers, were thirteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Services were conducted at Third Congregational church, of which his son is pastor, by Dr. George B. McColluem, a life-long friend, at 1:30 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon. Interment was at Millburn.
