     "The funeral services of the late Guy [Gary Andrew] Harrison, held last Friday at ten o'clock in the morning, were conducted by the Masonic Order with Rev. Chappell of the M.E. church assisting.  Interment was in Fairview Cemetery.

     Guy Andrew Harrison was born in Muscatine, Iowa, October 27th, 1876 and died in

Topeka, Kansas, April 14th, 1920.  When a babe of two years, he came to Kansas with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W[illiam] W. Harrison, and grew to manhood in Stafford county.

     On October 5th, 1904, Guy Andrew Harrison and Miss Jessie Wilcox were married, to

whom four children, William Karl, Mary Margaret, Helen Louise and Ruth Elleanore were born. All are left to mourn his loss.  His mother, Mrs. W.W. Harrison; a brother, Paul and a sister, Lucretia, live in Topeka, having moved there shortly after the death of W.W. Harrison.  Another brother, Roy, resides in Oregon and a sister, Mrs. Walter Bean, who lives in Cimarron, was here to attend her brother's funeral.

     Guy A. Harrison was well and favorably known in the business interests of St. John, being for years manager of the grain interests of A. Aitken; and, before that time was a stock buyer, having been associated with his father in buying and selling stock before the death of the elder Mr. Harrison a number of years since [1900].  After his father's death Guy A. Harrison continued in the business.

     The News joins the many friends in offering sympathy to the bereaved family."
