  • Note:
    Ephraim inherited from his father the land on which his house stood, near where the Howard Se minary now stands. He was representative to the General Court in 1723.

    Mary Keith "was courted by Ephraim Howard, not much to the acceptance of the old minister [Re v. James Keith, who, in 1688, was all of 45]. Notwithstanding his objection they were secret ly married, and were pursued by the irate father. Arriving too late to prevent their marriag e, he returned, and, complying with the prevailing custom, preached the following Sabbath fro m Hosea 4:17-"Ephraim is joined to idols let him alone." Time, however, softened his spirit , and the reconciliation which followed inclined him to preach from Jeremiah 31:20-"Is Ephrai m my dear son? Is he a pleasant child? For since I spake against him I do earnestly remembe r him still".
    Keith, Ziba, "Genealogy of the Keith family," Brockton, MA: Goodall, 1889. p. 13-14
