Evan Peters is an American actor. A picture of Evan with his parents can be seen here.

Evan’s maternal grandfather was Thomas Nicholas DeWald, Sr. (the son of Nickolaus/Nicholas DeWald/DeWalt and Katherine “Katie”/”Kate” Becker). Thomas was born in Missouri, to ethnic German parents. Nickolaus was born in Dolaț/Dolacz in Timiș County, Romania, the son of Johann/John/Hans Theobald/Dewald and Katharina/Katherine Krummenacker. Evan’s great-grandmother Katherine Becker was from Sânnicolau Mare/Nagyszentmiklós in Timiș County, Romania, and was the daughter of Johan/John Becker and Juliana/Julia Boehmer.

Evan’s maternal grandmother was Katherine E. Miller (the daughter of Nicholas Miller and Theresa Zornick). Katherine was born in Missouri, to ethnic German parents from Covaci, Romania. Nicholas was the son of Mathias A. Mueller and Catharina Bodjen.

Two of Evan’s paternal great-grandparents possibly were Henry W. Peters and Elizabeth Regina Gebhart, who were born in Illinois, both of them to parents of German origin. If Henry and Elizabeth are Evan’s great-grandparents, then Evan is a third cousin, once removed, of actor Tom Welling. Tom’s paternal great-great-grandparents, Johann/John Heinrich/Henry Welling and Euphemia Maria Maier, were the maternal grandparents of Henry W. Peters.

    NO CHANCE that he is only german

    DEWALD is not a german surname and he looks rather exotic for a german with his curly hair

  4. follers says:

    Well, he’s definitely at least 1/4 German.
