He married Thankful Clapp of Walpole in 1734. Their oldest two children, Eliphaz and Achsah, were baptized in Sturbridge (New Medfield) where his sister, Hannah, lived with her husband, Ezekiel Upham. In 1750, Ebenezer was listed as surveyor of highways in Douglas, where his son Eliphaz,and his family were living. In 1761, his first wife, Thankful, passed away, and he married again to Jane Phillips of Easton in 1762. In 1762 Ebenezer was blessed with the "New Light" and became a Baptist minister.
