Freeman, Me., Dec. 30, 1813; m. July 25, 1844, at East Branch Me., Jane H. HUNT; b. Carthage, Me., Jan. 2, 1825; she m. 2d, 1893, Geo. L. COOPER, res. 1001 10th Ave., s. St. Cloud. He was born in Freeman, Me., but soon moved to Corinth with his parents. He attended school at Charleston in his earlier manhood. His attendance was somewhat irregular from the fact that his services were required by his father -- he being the oldest boy -- who was in poor health. Ephraim began teaching on attaining his ma- jority, and while so engaged attended a religious revival at Corinth conducted by Rev. Geo. PRATT, of the Maine conference, and experienced religion. At first he was a Universalist but later joined the Methodists, first as an exhorter and finally as a local preacher. He received his certificate at West Hampden, Conn., Apr. 19, 1840, from Presiding Elder Husten. He joined the Maine conference and was granted a certifi- cate as deacon in 1844, two years later Bishop Beverly WAUGH appointed him elder. The first year of his labors was in connection with A. F. SOULE on the circuit above Oldtown. The next year he traveled as a missionary on what was then called Aroostook, an extent of sparsely settled country, so much so that he made his ap- pearance at the first appointment only once afterward, and that was when on his way to conference. He was one of the preachers whose lot fell to the East Maine conference. He labored at the following places, Corrinna, Dover, Atchison, Bear Hill, Kirkland, Lincoln, North Bangor (now Viezie), Upper Stillwater, and Brewer -- a new church and good revival at the latter place. He located at the conference held at Bucksport. At the close of that conference year went west; located at Clearwater, Minn.; preached every Sunday during the time of his stay. Grasshoppers took everything he put on the land which he had taken there and he went in the spring to Kingston, Meeker Co., and ran a grist mill for A. P. WHITNEY until the latter sold out and went to California. After that ran the same mill for Hiram HALL. He was appointed post- master, which office he held during the Indian outbreak and at the close of the war he removed back to Clearwater, sold his place there and put the money into a grist mill in company with James CAMPBELL, where after two years his health broke down and he took a homestead at a place in the timber country, in Benton Co., which name he gave, and it was organized as the town of Glendorado. All of the places named received first of all his labors for Christianity and the public school cause. At this latter place his health broke down to such an extent he gave his business and place into the hands of his son Melville Clement. His daughter Clara bought a resi- dence in the city of St. Cloud for a home for her parents, and there in a pleasant, restful home he finished his course in peace, under the preaching of Methodist doc- trine, and in the church which he never ceased to love. Conscious to the very last, only the pain of parting with wife and children disturbed his closing hour. The last words uttered were, "All things work together for good to them that love God." He d.
