Ephraim was the son of Ephraim and Ruth Worrick Orcutt. He was married twice. His first wife was Margaret Adams by whom he had two children, both of whom died and Margaret died of the effects of childbirth with the second in 1815. He married Betsey Homer in Dec. of 1815 and had 9 children; Susan E. (1816, who died young), Hosea (1818), Jane H. (1819), Ruth W. (1821), Ephraim (1823), Augusta (1825), Rufus (1828),Mary W.(1829), and Clarissa V. (1833). All were born in Bucksport, ME. I have families for Hosea, Ruth, Augusta and Mary but very little other information. I have noted that some of the folks on the Orcutt were working on this family several years ago. I am hopeing that there has been more current research. Ephraim is a direct descendant of John Beal of Hingham, MA, and, therefore, a member of my family.
