     Ephraim Church was born on 14 October 1863 at Ontario.1 He was the son of William Church and Sarah Davey.1 He died on 22 April 1932 at age 68.1 Ephraim's birth date is taken from the 1901 census. His death date needs to be checked. It's taken from the Dutton Advance newspaper. The date may actually be the date of issue of the paper. If so, it may be page 5, column 1. This is from an online index.

In the 1901 census, Ephraim is a farmer's son. Ephraim was into real estate in his later years. A family story has it that he had a property that he thought might interest his nephew, Alven Coleman, my grandfather, for a barber shop. Grandfather wasn't really interested, but atUncle Eph's urging grandfather took the train to Chatham and looked at the property and came home and said no dice. Galt suited him just fine.1
