Hahahaha maybe Hosea was a family given name used interchangeably, and sometimes the enumator had porridge in his ears & got names mixed. And arrrggghhh SPELLING. I'm pretty good with NY and even know Jefferson Co area pretty well. It may be helpful to know what kinda clergyman Hosea was.
It kinda looks like your Ures maybe were on the Canada side 1860, maybe for the Civil War. Folks did that, back & forth from NY. You left out Oswego County just south of those other 2.
1850 Palermo, Oswego, New York;
Roll: M432_577; Page: 43; Image: 357
UREA Hosea 24 cooper, all b NY
Darius was at Watertown 1870 when the rest of the family was at Wilna.
There are others at Palermo Oswego Co 1850 that could be interesting. Joseph URI 1793 but from NJ, a Polly b 1805 NY with married son Albert in the home.
1820 & 1830 Oswego has a James & a Joseph Ure.
1840 I dint figger out the speling at all. ;)
But it 1) it may be a good guess Hosea was born there, and 2) looks like Polly could be the mom and James, I took a guess at familysearch.org at 1790 +-10 years o lookee. Born abt 1790 of Paris, Oneida, NY married Mary Polly SEELEY. Something to poke at, anyways.
1910 o my 84 year old Hosea's got another wife, Charity, living over at Wayne County but said that's only his 2nd wife, of 22 years. This year he said both parents born Scotland. The Ezra that stayed at Palermo I'd figured for maybe his brother said his father was born Sco too. O there they are 1900, he's indexed Havea Ure at Savannah, Wayne Co, and remembers his parents were born NY.
I did find mention of A marriage at familysearch.org to Rhoda Ann Howard about 1844 at Oswego County. Why showing Sophonia 1850 then Ruth - I cannot guess. Maybe they just liked trying on names or thought it wasn't the guvmint's bidness. Like being Henry just after a war. Screwy is right!
If you don't live in NY or near the big library in IN, order the 1855 NY State Census from LDS for Palermo, it'll come with the 1865 to take a look at too, but the 1855 is the goodie. You might try a look at 1875 for Wilna Jefferson Co?
