U.T. "Duck" Alley served in the 6th West Virginia Infantry in the Civil War. Husband of Brucie Caroline Clouston Alley.

Death Claims Uriah T. Alley, West Virginia's Last Civil War Veteran.
Uriah Talmage Alley, 99, West Virginia's last Civil War Veteran, passed away Saturday night at his home on Main Street. He had retired early in the evening apparently in good health which he had enjoyed for so many years. His death was discovered shortly after midnight by his grandson, Denzel Alley, with whome he made his home.

Known to most of his friends as "Uncle Duck," Mr. Alley lived a very colorful life and until his death he kept his unusually good health and keen memory. For many years he was a dealer in livestock here. When he was past ninety years of age he could mount and ride a horse with the ability of a young man.

Mr. Alley was born in Pine Grove in Wetzel county and his parents moved to Cameron when he was very young. At the age of 17 he enlisted in the Union Army. He was twice captured by the Confederates and was imprisoned for some time in the Andersonville prison.

He is survived by his son, Wood Alley of this city, a granddaughter and a grandson. He was a member of the Methodist Church with Rev. Paul E. Sutton officiating.

Burial was made in the Cameron cemetery where full minitary honors were accorded him by members of the four American Legion posts of Marshall County: Cameron Post No. 18, the Earl Francis post No 3, the A.A. Mountain Post of McMechen and the Blake Brothers Post of Benwood.
