Ephraim Jellison was born in Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, and was two years of age when his parents left that state with their family in 1839, and came to Indiana, locating in Randolph county. In this county Ephraim Jellison grew to manhood and became a farmer.

He and his wife were parents of ten children, of whom seven are still living, the subject of this sketch having two sisters, Mary E. and Evan and four brothers, James, John A., Louis and Joseph Jellison...”
