  • Note: Ura was raised in W. Terre Haute, IN with her sister Biddle (Burnette) by her parents, Georgie and Bannie Arthur. She went through the 8th grade of public school before dropping out. In 1914 she met William Chadwick, a coal miner, and they were married on April 10, 1915. Ura and William Chadwick (Bill) had two sons, James (Jim) and Jack. Ura was a homemaker all of her life, and only worked outside the home after William's death in 1952. She was an excellent homestyle cook; she worked as a cook in a boy's dormitory at Indiana State Univ. for several years, then worked as a cook at Dick Davis diner in W. Terre Haute, IN until she retired. She returned to the religion of her mother later in life and attended church regularly. After her sister, Biddle, was widowed, the two sisters lived together in a small home previously owned by their "Aunt Lizzy" (wife of Uncle Joseph, brother to George Arthur)in W. Terre Haute. After Biddle's death, Ura (known as Eudie) shared her home with her cousin, Daisy Gates, and later with another cousin, Nettie (daughter of Lizzy and Joseph Arthur). She outlived all her cousins, however, and in the last few years of her life she sold her home and lived in a nursing home where she was cared for by a great-niece who nursed at the nursing home.
