Ephraim married Winnaford Hood in 1814. At the present time nothing has been learned of her parents though it is tradition that she was of the same family of Hoods that produced the Confederate General, Lieutenant General John B. Hood of Civil War fame. She was decidedly Scotch and boasted of her Scotch ancestry. She had a niece, Julia Hood, who married Joseph Dillman, they lived in Preble County, Ohio. She was a very large woman with black hair and brown eyes. She died March 17, 1853, from smallpox, contracted while ministering to the need of a destitute family in the neighborhood.
