My husband's name is Lionel Refson. His late father was Maurice Refson, one of many family members from South Shields but there is also a strong Sunderland connection. With regard to your great grandfather, I regret we cannot be very helpful, however we think that Lionel's grandfather had a brother, whose name we do not know, who left the U.K. for U.S.A./Canada around the time you mention and in approximately 1950 his son, Jacob (Jake) Refson, was stationed in the U.K. with the U.S. Airforce. We will contact another family member in the hope they will have more knowledge than us on this subject.
