Ur

Ur, of the Chaldees, was the native place of the family of Abraham, whence he migrated first to Haran and then to Canaan (;;;; ). It is supposed to be a district identical with the modern pashalic of Urfa, to which there belong several districts, among others Rouha, which is the ancient Edessa.
