      The oldest of Harmon and Frances Isaacs Hendricks' sons, Uriah was named for his paternal grandfather. But he inherited more than just a name; his legacy also included copper. His grandfather, patriarch of a great American Jewish family, had arrived in New York from Holland and eventually established a business importing metal from England. His father and uncle, Solomon Isaacs, established one of the first copper mills in the Unites States, and helped launch America on the path to industrialization.
           When the partnership between his uncle and father dissolved, Uriah and his brothers joined the firm. Harmon soon retired and the company was renamed Hendricks and Brothers, which continued as one of the country's largest copper suppliers. In 1861, when brother Henry died, the firm changed its name again, this time to Hendricks Brothers. Still, the business was not to be merely a three-generational enterprise— Uriah's sons Edmund, Joshua and Harmon Washington would continue to run the business after their father's death, and Joshua too would pass the reigns to his sons Edgar, Henry Harmon and Clifford Brandon.
           Uriah and Henry both married into the Tobias family, taking Fanny and Harriet as their respective wives. Uriah and Fanny had seventeen children. [3]
