Ephraim Henry Austin was a son of Charles Austin (1796-1875) and his wife Phoebe Ellen Woodward (1798-1854). He married Lucy Ann Beachum (1824-1904) in Marshall County, Mississippi in 1844, and they settled in Henderson County, Tennessee. They had ten children.
I have the following children: John James Austin (1845-1917), Cynthia Austin (c.1847), Margaret Mahalia Austin (1849), Phoebe Ellen Austin (1851-1934), Dr. Alfred Franklin Austin (1853-1942), Eliza A. J. Austin (c. 1856), William C. Austin (c. 1858), Henry W. Austin (c. 1861), Lucinda A. Austin (c. 1865), and Robert Austin (c. 1871). I am still researching them.
List of children from Mary Jo, who originally created this memorial: John James Austin, Margaret Mahala Austin, Phoebe Ellen Austin, Alfred Franklin (Frank) Austin, Charles William Austin, Henry Woodward Austin, Lorene Adelaide Austin, Robert Ephriam Austin.
