Uriah W. Lee, Spencer County, KY, 1850-?

Uriah (Uri) W. Lee settled in Spencer County some time between 1840 and 1850, having moved there from neighboring Shelby County. He was married to Harriet L. Brown Carter, widow of Obadiah Carter, and daughter of John Barton Brown and Malinda Neale. He was stepfather to Harriet's two daughters by Obadiah, Amanda and Richard Ann, and he and Harriet had the following children:

William P.
John B.
Elizabeth N.

In 1839 and 1849, Uri operated a tavern in Shelby County, backed by his father-in-law Barton Brown. On the 1850 Spencer County census, he was shown as a shoemaker. On the 1860 Spencer County census, he was listed as a druggist. Harriet was no longer living at the time of this census.

Does anyone know what happened to Uri in later years? I have found no further record of him after this 1860 census. Any help would be appreciated!
