HON. JOHN D. HARRIS was born December 29, 1829, three miles south of
Richmond, Ky., and is the son and only child of William and Malinda
(Duncan) Harris. The former, William Harris, was born in East Madison
County, May 16, 1805, and was a son of John and Margaret (Maupin) Harris,
natives of Albemarle County, Va., who came to Kentucky about the year 1790.

He (John Harris) acted as associate judge, assisted in laying off the town
of Richmond, and was a man of more than ordinary prominence. He was born
March 14, 1765, and his wife, Margaret Maupin, February 1, 1767. They were
married June 23, 1785, and to them were born nine children, as follows:
Robert, born October 27, 1786; Christopher, boron April 1, 1788; Overton,
born November 24, 1799; Betsy, born September 30, 1791; James, born May 1,
1794; John M., born December 30, 1795; Frances M. born March 26, 1802;
William, born May 16, 1805; Susanna W., born May 10, 1808. Robert married
Jane Ellison; Christopher married Sarah Wallace (his second wife was
Elizabeth Berry); Overton married Polly Woods; James married Minerva Harris;
John M. died in early manhood, unmarried; William married Malinda Duncan;
Betsey married Anderson Woods; Frances M. married James Miller; Susanna W.
Married William Duncan.

Christopher Harris, the father of John Harris,
married, for his first wife, Mary Dabney. Their issue was as
follows: Sallie, Robert, Tyre, Dabney, Christopher and Mourning. His second
wife was Nancy McCord, who bore children as follows: John, Jane, Benjamin,
Nancy, William, Barney, Overton and Isabel.

William Harris, the father of
subject, was a man of considerable local prominence. He represented Madison
County in the Lower House of the Legislature in 1850, and for twenty years
held the office of school commissioner. He was a wealthy farmer,
enterprising and progressive, and a public-spirited citizen. He died October
25, 1872.

His wife, Malinda Duncan, was a daughter of John and Lucy
(White) Duncan, one of a family of sic children, as follows: Malinda,
Elizabeth (Taylor), Emily (Goodloe), John A., Lou Ann (Hart), and Olivia
(Gregory).

Hon. John D. Harris, the subject of this sketch, as liberally
educated. Receiving a preparatory course in the schools of his county, he
attended Bethany College, Virginia, from which he graduated in 1847. He read
law one year with Judge William C. Goodloe, but never entered into practice,
preferring the older occupation - that of a farmer. He was married,
September 20, 1849, to Nancy White, a daughter of Valentine M. and Jane
(Gentry) White; she was one of a family of four children - three sons and
one daughter. Her father, V. M. White, died in 1833, and her mother married
James Blythe, by whom she had two daughters. Mr. and Mrs. Harris hadve had
born to them four children, viz.: William V., who died at six years of age;
John D., a bright and promising young man, who died at the age of seventeen,
and Pattie (Stone) and Mary P. Mr. Harris gave his children the advantages
of the best schools and colleges in the country, and their education, in
consequence, is of the most liberal. He began farming after his marriage,
and is to-day, one of the most prominent and wealthy farmers of the State.
He owns about 2,500 acres of fine land, well improved, and in which are
included the homestead of his father and that of his wife' father. He
commenced farming with about 500 acres, and by good management and proper
investments has been successful, and accumulated considerable wealth. He
makes a specialty of shorthorn cattle, and is one of the leading as well as
one of the largest stock traders in the country. He has never cared to enter
into the excitement of public life, and the positions he has held have, in a
great measure, sought him, his inclinations drawing him to quiet home life;
he takes an active interest in the prosperity of his country, and is liberal
in fostering its improvements, mentally and physically, to speak
figuratively. He has been president for some years of the Madison Female
Institute, and is popular among his neighbors, and universally esteemed by
all who know him. He was elected to the State Senate in 1885, and is still a
member (January, 1887) of that body, and one of its most active and
energetic workers. He is a prominent and formidable candidate at the present
time for nomination as governor of the commonwealth of the Democratic
ticket, with strong chances in favor of his ultimate success.
