Ephraim Harris, d. 1873 has a will in Pasquotank County, NC dated 1871. This will should be on record at the Register of Deeds of Pasquotank County, NC, although there may be a problem getting it.
Ephraim D. Harris d. 1816 has a will in Cabarrus County, NC. The Clerk's copy of this will is in Will Book A/43.
The original is housed in the NC State Archives. Those are the only men named Ephraim Harris in the book. They may have not made a will, so Estates Papers need to be checked.
William Elza (Elsey) Harris. Either you have made an error in copying the marriage date or else the date is wrong. If he was born circa 1799, he surely did not marry anyone before he was born.
There is no William Elza (Elsey) at all in the will book.
You may need to start over with him.
