  • Notes 
    • Ephraim's family moved to Evansville, Indiana in 1819, and settled in Vanderburgh county. Three years afterwards the father died, leaving the care and training of five sons and three daughters to the widowed mother.

      When about fifteen years of age, Ephraim made profession of faith in Christ at New Salem camp-ground, near Evansville. He was licensed to preach in 1838 and was ordained in 1841. For the next few years he was a traveling missionary for the Presbyterian church in Indiana, after which he settled in Ellettsville, where he remained about twenty years, preaching half of the time for seventeen of these years at Bloomfield.

      Reverend Hall began preaching in October 1859 at Washington, Indiana, which he did for the next seven years, after which he retired because of poor health. Toward the end of the 1860s his health was improved and he served as a minister for the Hermon congregation in Knox county, Indiana. The last year of his fruitful and successful life was given to various churches in special meetings. He had just taken up the work at home, in Washington church, and was moving on with his accustomed energy and devotion when he was suddenly called away. On the 18th of April, 1883, just as he and the family were preparing to go to an evening prayer-meeting, he was seized with a severe pain and dead in two hours of paralysis of the heart.
