The son of John Sebree, who died fighting in the Revolutionary War, and his wife Mildred Johnson, both of Orange Co., Virginia.

Uriel's mother also died while he was still young. He went to Kentucky with his uncle Cave Johnson. It's not exactly known when he went, but according to his daughter-in-law he endured many hardships as a boy, so it may have been very early. Cave Johnson first went to KY in 1779 and lived with his older brother Robert for awhile before returning to Virginia, but returned in 1784 to Kentucky after his marriage. This may have been when he brought Uriel. Uriel's sister Frances came in 1789 with her husband.

Cave Johnson was listed on the 1789 Fayette Co., KY tax list.

Uriel married first on 1 Dec 1797, Campbell Co., KY, to his first cousin Fanny Cave, daughter of John Cave and Mildred Bell. John Cave was son of Benjamin Cave and Hannah Bledsoe.

Uriel Sebree was named on the 1800 Boone Co., KY tax list.

Also in 1800, he became guardian of his younger sister Mildred:
Boone Co., KY Court records; Meeting of 20 October 1800:
"Milley Sebree, infant orphan of John Sebree, dec'd, came into court and chose Uriel Sebree to be her guardian."

Later that year he made a trip back to Madison County, Virginia to work on settling their father's estate. His brother-in-law, John Wright, had been appointed in 1797 when he married Uriel's sister Elizabeth to administer John Sebree's estate. Now, Uriel is also named an administrator:

Madison Co., VA county court - 26 Feb 1801:

"While Uriel was in Kentucky he made Boone county his home and represented that county in the House of Representatives 1806-1807, and was in the Senate 1813-1817. In 1815 he was one of the original trustees of Covington, KY."

Uriel helped his brother William study law while they lived in Georgetown, Scott Co., KY.

Uriel served in the Kentucky militia during the War of 1812, attaining the rank of Major:

"Uriel Sebree was a captain in Scott's Kentucky Volunteers in August, 1812, and was with Major Madison at Frenchtown, under Winchester. He was a gallant officer."

Article from Military History Magazine
Fort Meigs: Unsung Sentinel in the War of 1812
"By the time the Kentuckians reached the battery clearings, the Indians had them surrounded. Some managed to escape down the south slope to the river, but with Colonel Dudley dead most of the Americans were caught in the confusion of war whoops and musket fire, unable to muster a defense."
With fixed bayonets, the Americans plunged back into the woods and underbrush, driving the Indians back several hundred yards. The attack was halted, however, by a messenger who bore news that more Indians had been moving swiftly around to the south, trying to cut them off from the fort. The troops fell back just before the Indians could assemble in sufficient strength to oppose their withdrawal.
Boswell's and Alexander's forces were reinforced shortly after by 350 soldiers detached from the 17th and 19th U.S. regiments, as well as Captain Uriel Sebree's company of Kentucky militia, with orders to destroy the British batteries harassing Fort Meigs from the east. The troops passed through the wooded ravine under the fort's southeast walls and emerged on a narrow plain. Before them, the grenadier and light companies of the 41st Foot and two companies of Canadian militia formed a defensive line in front of the batteries.
As the Americans assembled, the 41st Foot fired a volley but inflicted few casualties. Colonel John Miller, leading the 17th and 19th U.S. Infantry detachments, ordered his men forward from 200 to 50 yards, then had them close ranks and charge. The Redcoats stood fast as the Americans rushed across the open field, but they began scattering as the attackers crashed through their line and clambered into the gun emplacements. At that point, some of the 500 Indians that Tecumseh had brought up to support the British attacked the American flanks, allowing most of the Redcoats to fall back and form again. Sebree's company became locked in desperate hand-to-hand combat, but disaster was averted when a fresh company of 19th Infantry, dispatched by Harrison, came to their rescue. Harrison's troops then pressed the British line until it broke, sending Redcoats and Indians fleeing to the east except for a few warriors who sniped at the Americans as they retired to the fort. About 30 Americans were killed and 90 wounded, but they succeeded in spiking the enemy guns and brought back 42 British prisoners to Fort Meigs."

From Salyer's "Sebree Studies," p. 32:
"Commissioned as Captain, first Regiment, on Aug 7, 1812, he led his company at Raisin, was captured when the detachment was surrendered on Jan 22, 1813.

"Following is a listing of the men from Boone County who fought in the Battle of River Raisin:

Wm. C. Bell, Esq., purchased a frontage on 67 1/2 feet "at the north corner of Mill and Masterson Sts." and adjoining "James Lemon's lot" from General Thomas Bodley and erected this imposing house before 1816. It was part of outlot "P" which General Bodley acquired from James Masterson.
Bell and his wife, Huldah C., sold the house and lot to Wm. Christy in 1816, from whom it was purchased  by James Johnson, brother of Colonel Richard M. Johnson.
The Johnsons and Uriel Sebree conveyed this and 15 other pieces of property to the Bank of the United States in 1824, and the bank sold this house to Thomas Smith December 1, 1829.

"Capt Uriel Sebree, a native of Orange Co., VA, was born July 15, 1774; left an orphan at the age of ten years. Soon after the death of his father he went to live with his uncle, Cave Johnson, in Boone Co., KY. He commanded a company in the war of 1812. He was in the disastrous battle of River Raisin, where he was made a prisoner. He returned to Kentucky and served several sessions in both branches of the Legislature. in 1819, Capt. Sebree was sent on an expedition to Council Bluffs with government stores, which duty he performed with great satisfaction. He was appointed to similar service in 1820. He was a man of great skill and perserverence. He was for years receiver of public moneys at the land office at Fayette, Mo., and in all these stations he had the reputation of an upright and efficent man.
"As a Christian he was marked for consistency and usefulness. He became a member of the Baptist church in early life, and for more than forty years took an active part in all the interests of the denomination. He co-operated in the association of the General Association, frequently was its moderator. His house was a home for his brethern. He died May 18, 1853."

 By Baptists. Missouri. General Association
p. 101 - "Let us now look into one of those old log meeting houses; the logs joined midway of the house. Here in front was the door, and in the rear was the pulpit, in a recess made where the logs joined. The pulpit was a box, with a door to it. The preacher was literally fenced in. The pulpit in those times was considered very sacred. A sermon would not be appreciated unless the preacher stood in this inclosed pulpit. Nothing wordly, nothing trivial must enter or be uttered there. There has been a great change in the construction of our pulpits—indeed, the pulpit has been exchanged for the platform. I remember at Richland, in 1842, Uriel Sebree, the moderator—a "layman"—was desired by some one to stand in the pulpit while he presided. He replied: "No, brother; the sacred pulpit is for other purposes than to preside over an Association." This expressed the general feeling. Now the other extreme prevails. The pulpit is a platform for any discourse; and, to some extent, the change is for the worse.
p. 147 - IV.
This estimable citizen, of Howard county, was the first layman who was elected moderator of the General Association.
He was born in the same state and county as the preceding, viz: Orange county, Virginia. He was about two months over a year younger than Rev. James Suggett.
They were alike in that they both stood firm by the cause of missions, when this course brought upon them the denunciations of many of those with whom they had been associated on terras of great intimacy. Those with whom they had worshipped, and by whom they had labored in the erection of their log homes and churches, yea, those who had stood together when the lives of their families were threatened by the savages, these men to whom their souls were knit in bonds that grew stronger amid severe trials and constant dangers, withdrew from them and called them hard names, because they believed the gospel should be preached to all nations, and that those who preached the gospel should in the language of the Bible, "live of the gospel."
The Baptists who sympathized with missions, offered in the Mt. Pleasant Association to withdraw from all formal connection with the Central Society (now General Association) and all other missionary organizations, if only the anti-missionaries would consent for them to give privately of their means to further the progress of Christ's kingdom.
But this privilege was denied them and so they went to themselves, and as they began to pray and work God began to bless them. When Uriel Sebree was but ten years of age he was left an orphan. He made his home in Boone county, Kentucky, with an uncle who took charge of the orphan boy at the death of his parents. Here he grew up to manhood.
He was made captain of a company of soldiers in the wars of that early day; was in the battle of the River Raisin, where he was taken prisoner.
He served in both branches of the Kentucky legislature.
He was twice entrusted with the command of bodies of troops sent to escort supplies to Council Bluffs.
For many years he was receiver of public money in the land office at Fayette, Missouri.
While thus conspicuous in his career as a citizen, he was far more honored by the people with whom he lived and labored in his religious citizenship. He was great among the Lord's people because he was servant of all. He withheld his hand from no good work. His time and means were regarded as the Lord's.
He stood firmly by those who advocated an aggressive christianity.
Hence he gained and held to the end of his life the esteem of his brethren; and his memory they hold as a sacred heritage. Upon the undying page of Zion's record he stands in the foremost rank of our pioneer laymen."

[Source: Appendix to Sebree Studies, pg A-3.] A letter on the family history was written in Nov 1895 by Mrs. Louisa M. Sebree of Fayette, MO, widow of John Sebree, son of Uriel Sebree of Orange Co., VA and Howard Co., MO

My Dear Mrs. Fryburger: Fayette, MO Nov 1895

My husband was John Sebree, oldest child and son of Uriel & Betsy Payne Sebree. He was two years old when the family came from Ky. to this state in 1820. My marriage to John in 1839 brought me into close relationship with Major Uriel Sebree (title given in the War of 1812, and by which he has always called here) and his family of seven children, certainly one of the best and pleasantest I ever knew, all have passed away, except the two youngest, Mildred Holman & Uriel, who lives in Colorado, as they were not fully grown when Pa died in 1853 and Ma in '54.
… Incidentally, I have heard Pa speak of his early life that his father, John Sebree, was killed or died in the Revolutionary War, speak of his Mother & sisters and one brother. He was taken by his Uncle, Cave Johnson to Ky. At some time he learned the carpenter's trade (me: from Larkin Wright?), he married, his wife taught him to read, when I would hear him speak of his early life, his trials and difficulties which he had to meet and overcome I was struck with wonder and admiration. He was a noble character. He was a very large man over six feet high, a commanding figure, he was a great reader, while his early advantages were poor he had accumulated much knowledge. A man of fine principals, and judgment. He sought and associated with men of learning & intelligence, hence, was himself a wise and good man in the true sense of the word. In the War of 1812, he was with General Payne, Dick Johnson & afterward married the daughter of the former, and niece of the later. There were seven children of that union, all dead except the two I have mentioned. I never heard him say very much about sisters. Dr. defew, also John Watts & daughter made some visits here after my marriage. William Sebree came to Ky, and Pa aided him in his education and he studied law in Georgetown, Ky. I know no dates. He was appointed Marshal for the War Territory of Florida, where he lived and died, I think about the year 1827 or 8. He and Pa corresponded regularly while he lived, a short time before his death he wrote Pa that he had only one child living a little girl, Octavia Stanley was the name. He died of Yellow Fever, of course, all communication closed. Letter writing was not then practiced, telegraphs & Telegrams and all the many new inventions of this progressive age. Uncle William's widow married again the fifth time to a lawyer, Drake, he died, also a son. In 1843 Dr. Drake of Cincinnati, a celebrated Physician and brother was traveling in the South, and called on his sister0in-law, living in Pensacola. He found her very sick, so low that he remained a few weeks, she died leaving this Sebree daughter alone in the world, with very little means of support, and she knew nothing of her father's history or family. Dr. Drake had possibly met with pa or at least knew of him. An Episcopal Minister who had gone there for his health and lived formerly in Fayette and well acquainted with the family and knew Pa well. These two talked and concluded to write here and see if there might not be a relationship. When Pa received the letter he looked up his old letters and found the one his brother had written him with the name of his daughter, no doubt remained so he wrote immediately and arrangements were made with Dr. Drake to bring her up. Pa wrote her telling her to come to him and his home would be hers…"

The History of Bent County - Bent Co. Biographies - by Charles W. Bowman.
"Mr. Sebree was born in Fayette, Howard Co., Mo., January 26, 1836, where he lived and worked on a farm until he was thirty-six years of age. He was married in 1859, to Miss Mary Virginia Saunders, and has six children, four girls and two boys. When he came to Colorado, he settled in Nine Mile Bottom, on the Purgatoire Creek, and filed an application for a homestead as soon as the land was open for pre-emption. He fully complied with the law in such cases, making the required improvements, and residing on the land five years. Soon after the expiration of this term, he sold out and moved with his family to the precinct of Higbee, in Bent County, where he now resides engaged in stock-raising. His stock originally consisted of Texas cattle, which he is improving by crossing with a short-horn breed. His ranches are thirty miles south of Higbee, in Smith's Canon, where there is a broken country, well adapted for the protection of stock during inclement seasons. Mr. Sebree was elected County Commissioner in 1878 for three years, and has filled the office acceptably to the tax-payers of Bent County."
