AYERS, Uriah Seymour

Uriah Seymour. Ayers was born on May 24th 1842 to Bradley L. & Clarissa Emmaline [Coe] Ayers in Ohio. By 1860 his family had emigrated to Minnesota.  

In 1861, Uriah enlisted in the Union Army on October 10th from Belle Prairie, Minnesota. He is one of 18 locals of the St. Louis County area that served with the Union during the Civil War. 

Mr. Ayers mustered in and out of the Union Army as a Private (PVT). He was assigned to Company D, 4th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. He was granted a disability discharge on October 8th 1862.

After the war, Mr. Ayers returned home and married Eliza Jane [Strout] in 1866 and they started a family.

Mr. Ayers died on September 13th 1917 at 75 years of age. He is buried at Oneota Cemetery in Duluth, Minnesota.

He is also featured on the SLCHS/VMH traveling exhibit, "The 18". The exhibit honors the 18 local Veterans known to have left everything to go off and fight for the Union in the Civil War. These 18 men, their characters forged in the rugged wilds of northern Minnesota, served the nation and helped build St. Louis County.
