Uriah was a Revolutionary War soldier. He moved with his Mason in-laws to Orange County, Indiana, where he was on the first voter list in 1817. Uriah’s first wife, perhaps Keziah Mason, died in 1820 in Orange County, leaving six children under the age of twelve.
Uriah soon moved his family to the Haw Patch area in Bartholomew County, Indiana, just a few miles north of where his father lived. He was on the first voter list in Bartholomew County in 1821. He owned land there in Section 4 of Flat Rock Township.
About 1825-30, Uriah Hamblen settled in Jefferson County, Illinois, where he died in 1854. A. P. Hamblen, author of The Hamblen and Allied Families, corresponded with several of Uriah’s descendants in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri from 1910–1930. From this correspondence, he learned that Uriah and his second wife were buried in the Locust Grove Cemetery west of Mt. Vernon and north of Woodlawn, Illinois.
