Actress Effie Germon excelled as a soubrette. The daughter of actors Greene C. Germon and Jane Andrews, she debuted at the Holliday Street Theatre in Baltimore (1857-58). Germon quit the stage to marry violinist Carlo Patti (brother of Adelina Patti), but later returned to star at the Chestnut Street Theatre (1863-64).
