Birth Name: Megan Denise Fox

Birth Place: Rockwood, Tennessee, USA

Ethnicity: English, as well as smaller amounts of Scottish, German, French, Northern Irish (Scots-Irish), possibly 1/256th Powhatan Native American

Megan Fox is an American actress and model. She is famous for her roles in the films Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen and Transformers. Fox is sometimes described as having “exotic looks”.

Megan has mainly English, as well as smaller amounts of Scottish, German, French, Northern Irish (Scots-Irish), and evidently remote Powhatan Native American, ancestry.

Referring to herself possibly playing a Cherokee superhero, Rainmaker, in Gen 13, Megan stated:

“She’s a Native American and I have a little bit of that blood in me,” she said. “It would be a bit of a stretch – but if Jake Gyllenhaal can be the Prince of Persia, I think that I can do that.”

Megan’s great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Powhatan, was said to be Native American, and of the Powhatan tribe. This ancestry comes through Megan’s paternal grandmother. If this is accurate, it would make Megan of 1/256 Native American ancestry. No other Native American ancestry has been documented on any of Megan’s publicly available family trees.

Megan’s paternal grandparents were Euel Massie Fox (the son of James Earl Fox and Nila Dell Warf) and Vivian Vier (the daughter of Shellie V. Vier and Maud F. Simerly). One of Euel’s ancestors, born in the 1700s, Capt. Peter Thompson, was born in Scotland. Megan has German ancestry through Vivian’s ancestor, Joseph Teffeteller (making Megan of at least 1/64th German descent). Megan also has very distant German ancestry from another of Vivian’s lines (through her Rainbolt and Grindstaff / Crantzdorf ancestors).

Megan’s maternal grandparents were Clay Cisson (the son of William Harrison Cisson and Eva Hale) and Thelma Macel Nelson (the daughter of James R. Nelson and Dailey Nelson). James R. Nelson and Dailey Nelson were first cousins, once removed.

Tom Sizemore is an American actor.

He has English, German, Scottish, and French ancestry.

In his book autobiography, Tom states that his maternal grandfather’s mother, Nina, was a Native American. It is not clear if this statement has been verified. Tom’s maternal grandfather is listed as “White” on the 1940 U.S. Census, but that does not mean that he did not have non-white ancestry.

Tom’s paternal grandparents were Blevins Sizemore and Vina King.

Tom’s maternal grandparents were Samuel Schannault (the son of John Oliver Chennault and Nina/Effie Tompkins) and Mildred Dean Hayes (the daughter of Robert Leslie Hayes and Lonetta “Nettie” Anderson).
