Looks Italian or Macedonian.

He does look kind of Hispanic.

Dubsman June 28, 2013 at 5:31 pm

is it possible he has some Jewish roots because I found out Lavendusky could be one of the Polish names some of the Jews in Poland took

follers June 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm

Carolyn Ann Lavendusky’s parents were Louis Guy Lavendusky and Lessie Annie Klecka. Lessie’s dad, John Klecka, was Moravian (Czech), and Lessie’s mother, Carrie, was born in Texas, to Moravian (Czech) parents.

Louis Guy Lavendusky’s parents were Peter Maximallian Lavendusky and Anna Tracey Zhudowski.

So nothing here indicates a Jewish background. Just a “standard” Texas mix of Polish and Czech.

BTW, most people I can find with the surname “Lavendusky” are not Jewish.

I don’t think it’s possible he would have any on the Polish/Czech side of the family but isn’t it likely on the 25% Mexican side he has some form of Sephardi ancestry that converted in the 1490’s?

Well actually isn’t it all a matter of how far back you go? I mean on Logan’s Mexican side he probably had Sephardic ancestry pre-1492 but probably Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry before 1648 when the Jews were kicked out of Poland and the ones that stayed had to convert as well. Or when the British/Irish kicked the Jews out in 1290 the ones that stayed completely left their Jewish faith. I am not saying he has recent Jewish ancestry but on both sides of his family he probably does going back 800 + years.

Correction add Lebanese

bearboy February 13, 2017 at 5:23 am

A lot of Lebanese immigrants came into Mexico in the 19th and early 20th century…. not saying he is part Lebanese only stating a fun fact.

Andi January 16, 2012 at 9:57 pm

I know everyone knows now, but just to confirm it. He is 25 percent Hispanic. He mentioned it a couple days ago on Kiss FM. He said that he didn’t know much Spanish, despite being 25 percent Hispanic.

follers August 16, 2013 at 3:24 pm

Oh, I missed this comment somehow. I didn’t know he mentioned his Hispanic background. Well, there you go.

DanaeSUCKSisSTUPID November 5, 2011 at 10:44 pm

My sister wrote that last comment and the name, sorry, but he isn’t lebanese. Sorry, he said so himself.

But did anyone else actually LOOK at his family tree?! Otherwise you would have probably noticed that he would have had an older brother!! O_o His name was Jeffrey Ryan Henderson and he lived from June 27 1988 to July 19 1988! Isn’t that horrible?! It’s so sad! It’s in his family tree!

DanaeSUCKSisSTUPID November 1, 2011 at 11:28 pm

He confirmed that he is not Lebanese okay people?! He said so in an interview, where he is dressed as the surgeon, that according to wiki he is Lebanese and then he said “which I’m actually not” you can look it up, cause it’s right there!

And just for the record, you would have to be a real bimbo [email protected]#% head to think he looks Arabic! Your making people believe you and it’s not even true! Are just wanting him to be perfect for you? Cause that’s kind of the impression I’m getting. Cause I mean, who goes around saying stuff like ” I know people who know him!” and stuff like that, if you DON’T know for sure?

And in less you saw it come straight from his lips, then I and all the others who agree with me, DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT! GOT IT?

DanaeSUCKSisSTUPID November 1, 2011 at 11:17 pm

He confirmed he is not lebanese! He said in a interview where he was dresses as the surgeon he said week according to wikipedia i’m Lebanese and I’m actually not. Okay? So look it up if you want too cause it’s there!

And just for the record, you would have to be a true bimbo [email protected]#% head to think he looks arabic! Are you and you just want him to be perfect for you or what? But don’t keep saying it and keep saying it if you don’t know for sure, or have actually seen it come from his mouth! Okay? I mean anyone could say they know or knew him! It does NOT make it true! Just like it doesn’t make true for you to keep saying it!

miana September 9, 2011 at 5:45 pm

When I first saw logan henderson on Tv ..I kinda felt
That he might be lebanese..I’m just sayin’

Laura August 14, 2011 at 10:19 am

do you havt are girlfiend

Lil Vacha July 4, 2011 at 6:27 pm

Hey ethnic, I found some more ethnicity’s on the rootsweb genealogy page above. I think he has Scottish, Polish, Irish, Hispanic (not sure which country), German, English, and possibly French descent.

zuzanna July 1, 2011 at 8:19 am

Levandusky is americanized version of Lewandowski so YES he is partly Polish !

angelgirl June 2, 2011 at 8:19 pm

ok people, he is not lebanese. he even said it in an interview with Hollywood life, the interviewer asks him about it and he says that he is not lebanese. so thats it, straight from logan himself. dont believe whatever all these other websites are saying.

Anna May 22, 2011 at 7:12 pm

I knew he was hispanic! My friend didn’t believe me. lol

Liyah April 12, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Why would his his mom be half hispanic and his dad have scottish ancestry if they were from lebanon? I looked at some pictures on google of lebanese people and compared it to logan henderson’s picture, and I don’t see any resemblance in skin tone, eyes, or nose. I see more resemblance when I look at pictures of scottish people and compare it with his picture. no offense but just because some website or close friend of logan henderson’s said that he’s lebanese doesn’t mean he’s lebanese. I honestly don’t believe it. And it just doesn’t add up. Full hispanic grandma, english ancestry on maternal grandpa’s side, scottish ancestry on paternal grandpa’s side, and polish ancestry on paternal grandma’s side. Like everyone else said where does the lebanese come from? If the website where you got that information from can’t tell you it probably isn’t true. I’m just sayin.

Myspace Celebrity February 18, 2011 at 6:53 pm

Oh really? Interesting.I knew he was part Latino…don’t ask how.

danaeSUCKS February 14, 2011 at 10:07 pm

I’m sorry about the northern-irish part, I was investigating about his last name and both “scottish” and “northern-irish” came up, so I decided to put both, unfortunately, I can’t edit it. And Logan HAS lebanese ancestry too, believe it or not. I’m sorry if that bothers you but it is true. I know wikipedia isn’t exactly a reliable source, but that’s not the only website I’ve checked, that’s why I simply added “Google” to the sources. Thanks and please do not get mad at me.

Dee February 14, 2011 at 11:19 pm

The issue isn’t whether it bothers me, the issue is that it isn’t true. Wikipedia doesn’t even say it anymore. What’s your source? All I see are random websites repeating each other.

According to the Great State of Texas, his parents were Jeffrey Lynn Henderson and Pamela Ann Wright. His father’s parents were Ralph Clifton J Henderson and Carolyn Ann Lavendusky, indicating some possible Polish ancestry in there. His mother’s parents appear to have been Earl Franklin Wright and Maria Fantina Gutierrez. Where does the Lebanese come in here?

Dee February 14, 2011 at 11:23 pm

In fact, here is a partial family tree. It would appear based on her name that his maternal grandma was Hispanic. Maternal grandfather looks very English to me

Dee February 14, 2011 at 11:27 pm

Or perhaps he (grandpa Rawls) was the adoptive step-grandpa, because it does list grandma Gutierrez as married first to an Earl Wright and then to a Rawls.

Dee February 14, 2011 at 11:30 pm

Look at this an obit of his maternal grandmother’s motehr – his grandmother was definitely full on Hispanic.


It mentions that his great-grandmother Josefa “Pepa” Martinez was survived by Pamela and Jeff Henderson (his parents).

I actually didn’t know about him being 1/4 Mexican before I looked all this up, so I’ll thank you for that at least. But definitely NOT Lebanese, lol!

danaeSUCKS February 15, 2011 at 5:46 pm

wow ok, if you submitted a profile here before you know I can’t edit/delete this. Sorry

hhhhhhhheeeee February 14, 2011 at 5:58 am

Henderson is Scottish full stop. Northern Irish isn’t even a nationality.

danaeSUCKS February 14, 2011 at 9:59 pm

sorry about the northern irish, that’s what I read while I was “investigating” (??) about his last name

Dee February 13, 2011 at 10:15 pm

He’s definitely not Lebanese. There’s no reliable source that says so.

Dee February 13, 2011 at 10:15 pm

And Wikipedia doesn’t say so either (correction)

danaeSUCKS February 14, 2011 at 10:01 pm

I’m sorry you don’t believe that but it’s true, both his parents are from Lebanon, and I do recall he replied someone on twitter about it. It said so on wikipedia about a week ago, also in Carlos Pena’s wikipedia it said all his roots too and now they’re gone. And they were (and are) all real cause I know friends of him who have confirmed it to me.

Alexa Marie Gonzalez Orozco February 13, 2011 at 5:08 pm

I can’t believe he’s arabic! I thought he was full white!

danaeSUCKS February 14, 2011 at 10:02 pm

if you take a good look on him, you can actually see it, his eyes, nose and skin tone really look arabic.
