URIAH ROUNDY had been a member of the old church organization and had witnessed the apostasy during the scattering of the Saints. He was one "who kept his armor bright, and ever ready to be used in the cause of truth," when opportunity presented. In the early days Elder Roundy had been well acquainted with Joseph the Seer and his father's family. Joseph's mother, Lucy, was, he said the best woman he ever knew, "a very charitable woman full of love and cheer for everybody." Father Smith, the patriarch of the church, he said, "was indeed a loving and good man--and all his boys were conscientious, honorable men." In some respects he felt that William was an exception, as he wrote: I did not blame him much, for he had seen so much persecution all his days heaped upon his family—it sometimes made him feel desperate and he had a temper to control, and he made some trouble through his hasty acts. In retrospect, it seems that the old-time Saints carried a great respect for the Smith family, but questioned some of the things William did. Rena Roundy, Uriah's wife, was born near Kingston, Ontario, Canada , August 25, 1810, and early accepted the gospel in New York . She came to Nauvoo with her husband, and thence to western Iowa, where she died November 1, 1880, at Galland's Grove. Elder Roundy had preceded his wife in death on October 2, 1869, and at the time of his death he had served the early and Reorganized Church as a missionary for thirty-five years.
