He was not there in 1859 when his mother died, and his minor sister Ellen C. picked as her own guardian the new administrator, REISINGER. Uriah re-married in IN, probably in Noble Co, IN to Elena TAYLOR, daughter of Wm TAYLOR & E. WILDMAN who were from CT, as his 2nd wife. What happened to his first wife and two children who were born before 1870? Did they die in Crawford Co? Elena died in Noble Co, IN in 1904 while on a visit there to relatives. Carroll Co, MD papers listed her obit and said she had relatives in MD.[obviously not true] Uriah was a court clerk in Barnes Co, ND. He apparently left no heirs.
