Uria’s Early Years

Per History of the State of Rhode Island

Thurber, Horton & Wood manufacture cotton goods. Their mill is located between Mill Street and the river, and was built, in 1824, by Uriah Benedict, B. Walker, William Allen, and Jabel Ingraham, for the purpose of manufacturing thread. This is said to be the first thread-mill in Central Falls. The property has passed through many hands, three-fourths of it being owned by Stephen Benedict at the time of his death, which occurred in 1868. One-quarter is owned by the heirs of Dudley Walker, and the First National Bank of Pawtucket. It is operated by the above company in the manufacture of thread, &c.

Footnotes

Cumberland is a town in Providence County, Rhode Island, United States, incorporated in 1746. Cumberland was originally settled as part of Rehoboth, which was purchased from the local Native Americans by the Plymouth Colony. It was later transferred to Rhode Island as part of a long-running boundary dispute.

Pawtucket is a city in Providence County, Rhode Island, United States. Originally, there were two Pawtuckets[citation needed]. One was very famous for its popular gold mines. Pawtucket west of the Blackstone River used to be part of nearby North Providence. East of the Blackstone River, the one famous for its gold mines, was originally settled as part of the Massachusetts town of Rehoboth.[citation needed] Once East Pawtucket (another alternate name for the area of Pawtucket east of the Blackstone) was transferred to Rhode Island in the 1860s, both sections (West and East Pawtucket) merged. It was later incorporated as a city.

Providence is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Rhode Island. Located in Providence County, it is the estimated third-largest city in the New England region. Providence was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, a religious exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He named the area in honor of "God's merciful Providence" which he believed was responsible for his finding such a haven to settle. After being one of the first cities in the country to industrialize, Providence became noted for its jewelry and silverware industry.

Rehoboth is a town in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. Rehoboth takes its name from the biblical place (meaning "room enough", from Genesis 26:22). It was incorporated in 1643 making it one of the earliest Massachusetts town to be incorporated. When it first became part of Plymouth colony, it included all of Seekonk, Massachusetts and East Providence, Rhode Island, and parts of the nearby communities of Attleboro, North Attleborough, Swansea and Somerset in Massachusetts, and Barrington, Bristol, Warren, Pawtucket, Cumberland, and Woonsocket, Rhode Island.
