Interesting Facts -

Born in Greene Co. N.C., Ephraim and his brother William A. Spivey moved to the Dog Bluff area of Horry County before the war and started farming. He was killed November 16, 1864 at Dinwiddie in the Petersburg, VA area, and was buried at that location.  He left behind his wife Elizabeth who is buried at Pisgah Methodist church just outside of Aynor. His children are buried there as well. His son Franklin was only 12 years old at his death and took on the responsibility of the farm with the assistance of his Uncle William who did not go off to fight. He was getting water for his regiment when he was shot and then bled to death.
