Uriah Spencer, dry goods and grocery dealer, was born in Lancashire, England, June 11, 1836, and is a son of Samuel and Hannah Spencer, natives of the same shire. Uriah learned the engineer's trade in England, and in 1863 immigrated to Sharon. He followed coal mining in Hickory township and subsequently ran an engine until 1877. He then entered into partnership with his nephew, J.S. Spencer, in the grocery business, in his present store-room, under the firm name U. & J.S. Spencer, which continued four years. Since that time Mr. Spencer has conducted a general mercantile trade. He was married March 3, 1861, to Eliza, daughter of Robert and Betsy Jaques, of Lancashire, England, in which shire Mrs. Spencer was born and reared. Ten children have been born of this marriage, five of whom died in infancy. The survivors are Mary A., Sarah, Esther, John L. and William, all residents of Sharon. Mr. Spencer is a Republican, and is now a member of the borough Council. He belongs to the I.O.O.F. and the K. of G.E. and is one of the well-known business men of Sharon.
