THOMAS URIE was a native of Ireland, who, emigrating to this country, lived for a time at Bloody Run, Pa., coming from there to Washington County.He received a Virginia certificate for 400 acres of land by estimation, but when it was surveyed, Jan. 10, 1787, it was found to contain but 320 acres.The name given his tract was “The Constitution.”It was situated on the waters of Buffalo Creek, adjoining the lands of George Ramsey, Solomon Shepherd, James Martin, and John Chapman, and upon this place he passed his life.It is now in the possession of Robert Clark and John Brownlee.THOMAS URIE had three sons: SAMUEL, SOLOMON, and THOMAS.SAMUEL and SOLOMON each weighed over 300 pounds.SAMUEL represented his district in the State Legislature, besides filling the office of justice of the peace from 1810 to 1826.SOLOMON and THOMAS were great hunters, and while thus engaged near Stillwater, Ohio, THOMAS was killed by Indians.SOLOMON escaped, and year afterwards (in 1815), when living at Coshocton, Ohio, he killed an entire band of six Indians, one of whom had made an insulting boast of being the one who killed his brothr THOMAS on the occasion referred to above.SOLOMON was arrested and taken to Mad River for trial, but was acquitted and returned to his home.He was killed in 1830 by a fall from his horse.GEORGE W. URIE, a son of SOLOMON, was present at the centennial celebration of Washington County in September, 1881.
