Uriah Gane was a prominent figure in Port Carbon during the Civil War. He was one of the town's early settlers and did much towards its progress. For a number of ears he was engaged in the brick making business at Mill Creek, but retired when Simpson & Gane conducted the business. The co-partnership lasted but a short time, when the elder Mr. Gane bought out Mr. Simpson and with his son, under the firm name of Gane & Son conducted the business for 12 years, when the yards were abandoned. Mr. Gane was also engaged in the boot, shoe and cap business for a long time on Coal St. and later at the corner of Pike and Coal Streets for forty years. At that spot he erected a large three story brick building, the third floor being a hall or lodge room, the first of its kind in the town. This building was destroyed by fire on April 21, 1886. The fire was supposed to have been of incendiary origin as a tramp who had applied at the Gane home for supper having been refused, threatened to get even, and after the fire started a small can half filled with coal oil was found near the building.
