Uri went to school at the Little zShoal School (Black Gnat School) and in the spring of 1880, he and his brother Dudley started farming on the Dr. Green farm. They had a hard time breaking up some sod ground because the black-berries, dew-berries and vines were so thick and because the skunks and rattlesnakes were so bad that they had to stop plowing; however, they had fine crops on the rest of the farm.
In March of 1881, he and Dudley moved to the Frank Ligget place where they farmed together again. Uri "Ellis" stayed with his mother, and in the spring of 1882, decided to go to Gentry County to see what he could find, but came home again in time to help in the wheat harvest. In August of that year, he was riding a young horse when it fell on him, hurt him badly, and caused him to have a serious sick spell.
He farmed at home the next four years with his brother. Their crops were fine but as he was a young man and had alreaady found an attraction near Liberty, he decided to sell out to Dudley and go to the Jim Love place to take care of a large fruit orchard, which was some nearer his attraction. And so, in November of 1887, he married Gertie Lee Holt. After having a baby boy in Aug of 1888, they left in the fall to Mr. Holt's to get more of thier things for winter use, their nice new house burned to the ground.
