I recently purchased a large wooden stave barrel with the following information printed on it:
From: Transp Office, Ft. Leonardwood, MO
To: Capt Gerson J. Harris
I would like to find out any information about Gerson Harris, his occupation, and the dates of his life. I am guessing that he may have been a riverboat captain, as there were a couple of riverboats with captains with the last name of Harris.
