Chapter 48 August Effren of New York City and Missouri


August Effren (Efrein or Efreins), b. abt. 1848, NY or Baden, Germany, married Tillie, b. abt. 1852, England [CEN8002; ~CEN00; CEN2037] The records supporting this branch may actually be for more than one family, but it appears that it is one family. In 1920 he lives with his son-in-law, George Sexauer, in Missouri.  Bernard is a theorized son because August lived in MO in his later years and one of Bernard’s  daughters’ names is Augusta. Harmon Ephron’s family also lived in Missouri for a while and in one reference the family spells its name EFREIN. There is nothing to indicate that the August Effrein/Effren family was Jewish.

There is also other references in the 1920 census to EFREIN: Benjamin, age 44 and Joseph, age 52, both born in MO, lived in Ste. Genevieve Cty. [CEN2039]. From Roots Web, there was a Benjamin EFFREIN in Missouri. [CEN2040; Genealogy – ]. There are several 1910 census entries under the names of Effreien, Efferin and Effrine, as well as a 1920 reference to a John Efrein,  but they have not been added to the appendix nor the information incorporated in this genealogy (except here)
