Weldon D. Sefrit was born in Illinois, the son of William and Emma Sefrit, both of whom were born in Indiana but later lived in Warren County, Illinois and Mahaska County, Iowa.

On 7 November 1908 in Livingston County, Weldon D. Sefrit married Sarah Adeline Wilson, daughter of William Henry Harrison Wilson and Sarah Elizabeth Gay, both of Livingston County. Sarah Adeline died 30 January 1922 and, on 6 July 1926, Weldon D. Sefrit married Sarah "Sallie" C. Fisher, daughter of Martin Van Buren Fisher and Mary Thompson.

I remember Mr. Sefrit and Aunt Sally. They are my cousin's grandparents.
