URIAH B. LLOYD farmer; P. 0. Troy; was born on the farm upon which he now resides, Aug. 23, 1833, is the son
of John and Anna (Deweese) Lloyd; he was born in Pennsylvania April 1, 1790, and his wife in Virginia about 1797.
John, thef Mather, came to this county in February 1814; after being here about two or three years, he was united
in marriage with Anna Deweese, daughter of Lewis and Mary Deweese, who were born in Virginia and came to Ohio at
a very early day. By this marriage they had eleven children, viz., Margaret. deceased; David; Mary, now Mrs. H.
Puterbaugh, living in Elkhart Co., Ind; Isabel; Rachel now Mrs. D. Counts, living in Troy; Ruth; Mehitabel, now
Mrs. George Buckles; Elizabeth, deceased; Uriah B; Henry, and Hannah L., now Mrs. William Burton, living in Indiana.
After his marriage, he lived one year with his uncle, and then located upon the farm upon which Uriah and Henry
now reside; here he commenced right in the woods, and cut out the first stick of timber, made an opening, built
a log cabin, and began a pioneer life; from day to day and year after year he toiled and labored, enduring the
hardships and deprivations, such as pioneers only know and realize; after sixty years of industrious labor, he
died, attaining the venerable, age of nearly 85 years; his works remain as mementoes of his labors, having brought
93 acres from the dense forest into a good cultivation, with good buildings erected and everything quite comfortable
and convenient. in contrast to the dreary wilderness of sixty years before. His wife departed this life about three
years prior to his death. Uriah B. and two sisters, Isabel and Ruth, all still unmarried, live upon the home place;
also Henry, who is married, resides in another house upon the farm, and have, since the death of their father,
continued the management of the estate.
