The surname “Lohman” was originally spelled “Lohmann”, and came from Ray’s partial Swiss ancestry.

Alison’s paternal grandmother was Ann McKusick (the daughter of Sherman Preston McKusick and Mabel Gay Neumeier).

Alison’s maternal grandparents were Curtis George Dunham (the son of Curtis George Dunham and Genevieve Beatrice Odette) and Marion Jean Jones (the daughter of Cecil Jones and Loretta). Genevieve was of one quarter French-Canadian descent. Marion was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. One of Alison’s maternal great-great-grandfathers was Canadian politician Edmond George Odette.

There is something that gives a sense of Jewish on her face. And her eyes look brown.

You should add Swiss among ethnicities, if her original surname was from there. Not sure but Patrick last name could be Irish
