Jeptha Markham was born in Hartland, Connecticut on June 2, 1782, and was baptized at the East Hartland Second Congregational Church. He was married three times, first to Jenny (--?--), secondly to Lovina Vaughn, and third to Mrs. Mary D. Morse. He is reputed to have had fifteen children.

Jeptha's migration, first with his parents, and later as head of his own family, took him to Onondaga and Otsego Counties, in New York. From there he went to Athens County, Ohio and finally to Knox and Henry Counties in Illinois. He left his last wife in Illinois, and traveled to Oregon, where some of his children had migrated two years before.

On October 5, 1850, he arrived in Astoria, Oregon aboard the ship Panama. He died at the age of 86 years, 7 months, and 14 days at Jefferson, Marion County, Oregon. His burial site is unknown.
