Israel Broussard is an American actor.

Israel’s surname, “Broussard”, comes from his adoptive stepfather, who is of almost entirely Cajun (French) descent. The “Broussard” surname goes back to Jean Francois Broussard and Catherine Richard, who were the parents of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard. Singer/actress Beyoncé Knowles is a descendant of this couple. While the surname “Israel” has a Jewish association, Israel Broussard is not of Jewish heritage.

Israel’s maternal grandfather is Aubrey Allan Clapp (the son of Aubrey Allan Clapp and Norma Baumgardner). Israel’s great-grandfather Aubrey was the son of Albert Austin Clapp and Edna Esther Bailey. Norma was the daughter of Frank M. Baumgardner and Jessie Mae Allen.

Israel’s maternal grandmother is Valeria Lee Ebert (the daughter of William Walter Ebert, Jr. and Nancy Patricia Megee). William was the son of William Walter Ebert, Sr. and Margaret Mae Kidwell. Nancy was the daughter of Henry Edward Megee, whose father was Scottish, and of Myrtle Clifford Wilkerson.

Correction. Apologies to follers, et al. Israel is a Broussard by adoption, not by birth. If it is any consolation, you nailed his adoptive father’s ethnicity.
