Jackson County's lone delegate at the Wyandotte Convention, the 38-year-old Ephraim Moore was born in Ohio and moved to Kansas Territory from Iowa in 1857. At the convention Moore served on the apportionment, county and township organization, and a special investigation committees, but otherwise appears not to have been active. In 1880 Moore, now working as a carpenter, was living in Circleville, Jackson County, with his second wife, Dorcas (age 40, native Iowan), and his Kansas-born stepson, Daniel Nelson age 11.
