    Uriah B. Lloyd, famer; P. O. Troy; was born on the farm on which he now resides, August 23, 1833, is a son of John and Anna (Deweese) Lloyd; he was born in Penn. April 1, 1790 and his wife in Virginia, about 1797. John, the father, 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 County, 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 he was married, 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, 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 all of 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 mementos of his labors, having brought 93 acres from the dense forest into a state of good cultivation, with good buildings erected and everything 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.
