Fonctions : Clipping came from an edition of the Toronto Telegram at the end of March, 1932. It was kept by Annie Sayers, eldest daughter of Arthur Harris. The clipping was then kept by Annie's daughter Barbara Sayers Larson.;;Arthur Beveridge Harris (1843-1932) was the only surviving son of Elizabeth (n‚e Molony) (1829-1884) and Captain James Beveridge Harris (1797-1884). He later married Mary Magrath (1859-1954) and they had three children, Annie (1882-1986), Naomi (1883-1968), and Margaret (1887) who died shortly after birth. Arthur helped his father with the daily tasks of maintaining a farm. He inherited the Benares in 1884, upon the death of his father, Captain Harris. In the same decade, both Arthur and Mary received a number of inheritances that made life easier at Benares. Arthur worked as a gentleman farmer at Benares and was very active at St. Peter's Anglican Church. He was on the building committee in 1886 and also served as a church warden and had agreed to assume some of the debt over and above the amount contributed to the Building Fund of the new structure.
