Ezra Mead was born 9 Oct 1737 at Greenwhich, CT, son of Timothy and Sarah (Bouton) Mead and died, probably Rutland, prior to 4 Dec 1784 when his estate was entered in probate. He was half brother to James and Zebulon Mead. Ezra married Tryphena Burton 20 Feb 1760. She was born 10 Aug 1747 at Preston, CT, daughter of Jacob and Mary (Herrick) Burton. She married (2) John Wylie 20 Aug 1794. It is believed they moved to Ohio. Very little is known about Ezra except that he served in the Revolution in 1779 and 1780 from Rutland and that he owned land and a house near Otter Creak in the West Parish.

His estate went to probate in 4 Dec 1784, so he probably died shortly before that.
