Ebenezer served under Winfield Scott in the War of 1812. He was captured by the British and held at Halifax.

Ebenezer buried his first wife Katherine as well as their daughter Irena in New York. In 1828 he moved to Oakland County Michigan with his second wife Samantha and his surviving unmarried children. His daughter Louisa with her husband Adolphus Gould and their young daughter Catherine moved to Oakland County about the same time.

Apparently Ebenezer and Samantha died in Michigan during the mid to late 1830s. Neither appears in the 1840 census.
