I am not certain this was he, but there was a Richard Uren who was married to Jane Nicholas and had a son William J Uren who died in the Keweenaw Peninsula in the UP of Michigan in 1925 at age 62. William was the general manager of a local mining company. Wiliam married Emma Forbes, and they had a daughter, Alice Margaret, who married Victor Powers. Another daughter, Mary Avis, was a teacher who died at Ann Arbor of pneumonia.
