The Madison County census reports the 11 children. Ephraim Rouse was still in Madison County VA in 1820. June 23, 1827, Ephraim bought two parcels of land in Boone County KY totaling 89 acres. They probably moved that year. I have read that Ellen came to Boone County in October 1827 and married her cousin Rolen Rouse (George's son) December 20, 1827. Barbara died prior to the 1850 census which listed Ephraim Clore (85) and daughter Rosa (50). His real estate was valued at $1500. He was less affluent than his brothers. Ephraim died July 16, 1851. December 25 Moses Weaver purchased the interest of the other nine heirs in Ephraim Clore's 70 acres (9/10 for $1885). Thirteen of the signatures on the deed were made with a mark. Only two son-in-laws were able to sign their names.
