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)
