Yeah, this guy and likely one of his namesake sons, since the elder Ezra,
correspondent of Washington and Jefferson, seems to have died in 1811.
Regardless, I gather that he/they are both to be credited for bringing the
screw-tip auger and its manufacturing process into being.

Like all good ideas, it seems so simple in retrospect, doesn’t it?
