Here is the link to Barry County Missouri Genweb:

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mobarry/barry.htm

I looked at the link for obituaries and found the obit for Andrew Harris, giving his wife’s name as Rebecca, born 10 Jan 1827, died 10 Jan 1899. I also found an obituary for George E. Harris, listing his parents as Andrew Harris and Rebecca Harrison.

From the LDS familysearch site is this marriage info:

Andrew Harris married Rebecca Harrison, 1 April 1850 in Summit County Ohio. This was extracted locally, meaning it is from the microfilm of Summit County OH marriage records index. In the 1850 census, Andrew and Rebecca were living in Cuyahoga Falls, OH.

The census records give the birth place of Rebecca as Ireland. The 1900 Barry County Census record for their son, George E. Harris, shows his mother as being born in Ireland.
