Austin Mahone is an American singer and songwriter. He is the son of Michele Lee (Demyanovich) and Charles Edgar Mahone.

Austin’s father’s ancestry was heavily English and German, including several lines of recent immigrants from Germany; he also had some French, and remote Welsh, ancestry. Austin’s mother is of Rusyn-Slovak and German descent.

Austin’s patrilineal line can be traced back to his great-great-great-grandfather, William F. Mahone, who was born in Alabama, the son of an Alabama-born father, William Crosby Dawson Mahone, and a Georgia-born mother, Zenora Flournoy Dillard.

Austin’s paternal grandfather is Charles Edgar Mahone (the son of Charles Edgar Mahone and Norma Francelle DeViney). Austin’s grandfather Charles was born in Texas. Austin’s great-grandfather Charles was the son of Charles Edgar Mahone and Marie/Mary Denise Perry; Marie was born in Gironde, France. Norma was the daughter of Thomas Elmer DeViney and Phoebe Candacy Curtis.

Austin’s paternal grandmother is Sue Ann Freeze (the daughter of Franklin Harris Freeze and Vernell Cason). Sue was born in Texas. Franklin was the son of Hugh Horace Freeze and Cleo Estelle Adams. Vernell was the daughter of James Bennett/Ben Cason and Derond Houston.

Austin’s maternal grandfather is John William Demyanovich. John is likely of Rusyn descent from Slovakia.

Austin’s maternal grandmother was Mary Loretta Voegler (the daughter of Joseph Francis Voegler and Mary Elizabeth Knoll). Austin’s grandmother Mary Loretta was born in Pennsylvania, and was of German descent. Joseph was the son of Joseph A. Voegler and Sophia Barth. Mary Knoll was the daughter of Raymond Augustine Knoll and Loretta Theresia Franz.

Austin’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his great-great-great-great-grandmother, Helena Anstadt, an ethnic German who was born, c. 1834, in Schwemburg, Alsace, France.

he looks a little dark

i have never seen an ethnic irish, english, german or slovak with that look

i would have thought of IRISH+ ITALIAN

follers August 26, 2016 at 1:27 am

What famous people of mixed Irish and Italian descent does Austin Mahone remind you of?

andrew August 26, 2016 at 3:23 pm

Nobody. This is a side effect of globalization and Internet. A wave of non-European keyboard warriors who gives lessons about what is true white/European. Really funny.

neiltennant July 4, 2017 at 12:57 pm

you are an ignorant

you don’t know me !

i am as white as white bread and have a blonde beard


andrew July 4, 2017 at 1:08 pm

How can you have a blond beard if you’re black-haired? That is what you stated.

madman July 4, 2017 at 3:10 pm


I’m more surprised he’s actually old enough to have a beard. His comments make him seem like he’s around eight years old.

andrew July 5, 2017 at 5:40 am

Good point

Capricious October 9, 2015 at 9:15 pm

He looks Slavic to me. Very Serbian and Croatian.

He’s a cutie btw

cwm85 August 9, 2015 at 1:33 pm

Wtf? Part black? I have part black and quarter blacks in my family and they don’t look like straight up Caucasian like this guy does. You have to get ya eyes checked or are just delusional.

neiltennant August 1, 2015 at 2:09 pm

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 4:29 am

Shitty music by the way, poverty Justin Bieber.

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 4:29 am

Looks Southern German, Northern French, English.

andrew July 27, 2014 at 7:20 am

you have a weird idea of geography. Btw Mahone surname is Irish to me

Alice July 27, 2014 at 9:08 am

Yes Mahone is an Irish name but someone carrying that name obviously doesn’t have to have recent Irish ancestry. Austin Mahone’s Irish ancestry is very distant and not showing on his ancestry tree.

follers July 27, 2014 at 11:56 am

“Mahone” is a rare surname. I don’t know if you can be sure of his ancestry 200 years ago unless it’s been traced for certain.

Alice July 27, 2014 at 8:24 pm

It is an Irish name. It has the same origin as Mahoney and just a variant of this name. It is found almost exclusively in West Munster, is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic “O’Mathghamhana” (Modern Gaelic “O’Mathuna”), descendant of Mathghamhain, a male given name meaning “Bear”.

Read more:

During the Middle Ages, attempting to record a Gaelic name in English was a daunting task. Most names were spelt by scribes solely bsed on how a name sounded, a name could have been recorded many different ways during the life of its berer. Numerous spelling variations were revealed in the search for the origin of the name Mahone. Variations found include MacMahon, MacMann, MacMahan, MacMohan and others.

The name Mahone is definitely Irish. Whether it can be shown Austin has Irish descent I don’t know but he carries an Irish name.

andrew July 29, 2014 at 4:32 pm

hey Alice do you speak Irish?

Alice August 3, 2014 at 3:11 am

An cupla focal Andrew which is not very much unfortunately. My family left Ireland when I was a child.

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 4:28 am

Looks German.

ssempre July 6, 2014 at 1:26 pm

I thought he was half mestizo, I don’t know why though because he looks clearly white

tinasheeeee July 6, 2014 at 3:05 pm

ihatemostpeople February 14, 2014 at 7:39 pm

He looks a little Spanish.

Check7t February 21, 2014 at 12:30 pm

Spanish as in Spaniard? Maybe. Not mestizo or tri-racial, that’s for certain.

Please see Austin’s Texas birth record, below. He was born “Austin Harris Mahone”, to Charles Edgar Mahone V and Michele Lee Demyanovich. This is a transcript of Austin’s official birth record, so it is the most definitive source.

Joli November 22, 2013 at 2:16 am

His middle name is Carter not ” Harris”

Irish surname as fuck

follers September 27, 2013 at 4:39 pm

That is what they all say, but there is no proof of his Irish heritage.

For all we know, it was changed from “Meinhardt”.

andrew September 27, 2013 at 4:59 pm

German last name

follers September 27, 2013 at 5:03 pm

Well, I was kidding. But it is an extremely rare name with this spelling, so who knows.

follers June 25, 2013 at 11:33 am

Ethnic, can you put up a picture, please?

greeny95 June 25, 2013 at 6:10 am

Austin’s middle name is Carter.

follers June 25, 2013 at 11:32 am

Austin’s middle name is “Harris”. The internet has been lying to you.

Irish immigration to the UK is huge. As may at 6 million people in the UK have an Irish grandparent.
The name is definitely of Irish origin. English people did not take on Irish names.

Alice November 21, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Correction to the above. As many as 6 million people in the UK have an Irish grandparent. Some Irish names in England would be there for generations so I agree that if it can’t be traced to Ireland it should be included in their ancestry.

gel August 13, 2015 at 2:17 pm

What are you talking about? – the Mahone here has no indication of England.

Alice November 21, 2012 at 6:47 pm

If someone was born that far back I wouldn’t put Irish ancestry but the name is of Irish origin. The Irish and British have been moving back and forth in those island since they were inhabited. They have a very entwined history. Ireland & Britain are very close geographically. Unless there is some proof I wouldn’t put Irish ancestry in. There is a lot of celebrities listed with Native American ancestry with no proof though.

Alice November 21, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Thanks for your response Follers. I’m always impressed with your detective skills in tracking down people’s ancestries.

Alice November 21, 2012 at 4:55 am

He must have a bit of Irish ancestry with names like Mahone and Deviney on his father’s side?
