In Response To: Re: Black man in white CIVIL WAR regiment? ()
More info: there is a Uriah Wise in Union County, Washington Township in the 1850 census. He is 26 years old, making him born circa 1824, and he is married to Sarah, age 33 (born c. 1817). They have four children: George (age 7), Amanda (age 5), Sarah B. (age 3) and Uriah (age 2). Everyone is described as being born in Pennsylvania, and the race column is blank, which in this case, indicates white. Uriah's occupation is "laborer."
