Ephraim Allen was born about 1772. He was the son of Benjamin Allen and Sarah Somers. He married Elizabeth Silliker on April 28, 1795 in Prince Edward Island.

They had at least 10 children, whom they raised in Botsford Parish, Westmorland County, New Brunswick[1] [2] [3]

On the 1820 Census, there is an "Ephram Allan" in Botsford with a wife and 9 children.[4] This is consistent with the known children of Ephraim and Elizabeth at that time.

Following Elizabeth's death in 1826, Ephraim married Emily Brownell on January 23, 1833 in Westmorland County.[5] They had at least 5 children.

Ephraim died on February 5, 1853 in Cape Tormentine, New Brunswick.
