      George Edward Harris (son of John D. and Elaine Brooks Harris) and Valeria Ann Stanfield (daughter of Jerry B. and Kate Fox Stanfield) were married in 1891 [but see other date of 30 Nov 1892]. They were farmers and lived in the A. J. Hester area the first years of their marriage. They then bought a farm in the Providence area, east of Roxboro, and lived there until 1909 when they bought the Charles Winstead farm (called the "Old Colonel Winstead Farm") west of Roxboro on the Leasburg Road. There they lived until their deaths. They are buried in Burchwood Cemetery in Roxboro, North Carolina.
