He was married to Martha Ann THORNTON about 1875 in Utah.

 In Miller's book, it quotes George Hobb's journal which said that the Harris family had heard about the comtemplated Mormon settlement on the San Juan, and had moved in from Colorado during the summer of 1879.  He lists the number of people in the camp at 10 grown persons and five children (p. 98)
In Platte De Lyman's journal April 22, 1880 it states that he bought a log house, 10 acres, a stove, table..and a town lot from Geo. Harris...(171)
In the Hobb's journal (Miller 210-211) it gives more information about the Harris family .
