Back in January, Ellar’s maternal grandmother Kathy Horton did an interview with a British paper. She remarked to the reporter that she is 1/16 Native American ancestry.

I couldn’t find anything in his grandmother’s recent genealogy, and her parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, are all listed as “White” on censuses. If someone can document Ellar’s claimed 1/64th Native American ancestry, feel free to.

I added a note about it, and census records.
