(CDV owned by Linda Fluharty.)

     Uriah Wilson Halsted was born in New York about 1817. His parents were Timothy Halsted IV, a native of New York, and Rhoda Wilson. They were residents of Cuyahoga County, Ohio in the 1840, 1850 and 1860 censuses, and probably for the rest of their lives. At some point, Uriah embarked upon a career as a school teacher. His given name may have been "Uriel," the spelling found in a number of records.

This family - Halsted and Grubb - has been extensively researched by Linda Fluharty, who owns a fabulous photo album of the family. - Uriah's brother-in-law was Captain Andrew Grubb of the 5th West Virginia Cavalry, and once a mayor of Bridgeport, Ohio. Grubb's son, Jacob, was a Mayor of Wheeling.
