    her father graduated from University of Illinois, so he may be presumably from there.

    her possible paternal ancestors:

    There is an Accola married to a woman with a French surname, maybe a clue.

    CORRECTION: She should be listed as Swiss-Romansh instead of Romansh-Swiss, to align with the other people with Swiss ancestry.

    Romansh-Swiss, nice. Romansh is one of 4 official languages of Switzerland (with German, French and Italian)
