Megan Fox is an American actress and model. She is famous for her roles in the films Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Transformers, Jennifer’s Body, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Megan is the daughter of Gloria Darlene (Cisson) and Franklin Thomas Fox. A picture of her parents can be seen here. Megan is married to actor and musician Brian Austin Green, with whom she has three children.

Megan is of mostly English descent. She also has small amounts of Scottish, German, and Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry, along with distant French and Welsh roots, as well as possibly 1/256th Powhatan Native American ancestry.

Megan’s Instagram profile is titled “the_native_tiger,” and she previously referred to herself as “Child of the Cherokee Tribe” on that site. She has also stated, several times, that she is of part Cherokee Native American ancestry.

Megan’s great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Powhatan, was said to be Native American, and of the Powhatan tribe. This ancestry comes through Megan’s paternal grandmother. If this claim accurate, it would make Megan of 1/256 Native American ancestry. No other Native American ancestry, Cherokee or otherwise, has been documented on any of Megan’s publicly available family trees. All of Megan’s grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents are listed as “White” on United States Censuses.

Megan’s paternal grandfather is Ewell T. Foxx (the son of Arthur Thomas Fox and Mary Elizabeth Pass). Ewell was born in Tennessee. Arthur was the son of John Bunyon Fox and Ellen Dora Ussery. Mary was the daughter of John Henderson Pass and Minnie May Erwin.

Megan’s paternal grandmother was Vivian Vier (the daughter of Shellie Vernon Vier and Maud F. Simerly). Shellie was the son of William Ruban Vier and Nancy T. Adamson/Adams. Maud was the daughter of John Franklin Simerly and Rebecca Ann Teffeteller. Megan has German ancestry through Vivian’s ancestor, Joseph Teffeteller (making Megan of at least 1/64th German descent). Megan also has very distant German ancestry from another of Vivian’s lines (through Vivian’s Rainbolt and Grindstaff/Crantzdorf ancestors).

Megan’s maternal grandfather was Clay Harrison Cisson (the son of William Harrison Cisson and Sallie Ann Martin). Clay was born in Tennessee. William was the son of William Cisson and Sarah Jane Davis. Sallie was the daughter of Columbus Allen Martin and Alice Franklin Davis.

Megan’s maternal grandmother was Thelma Macel Nelson (the daughter of James Ransom Nelson and Dailey I. Nelson). Thelma was born in Tennessee. James was the son of Mark Nelson and Martha Ann Crouch. Dailey was the daughter of Lorenzo Dow Nelson and Rosie/Rose Ann Givens. James Ransom Nelson and Dailey Nelson were first cousins, once removed.

    I agree with chichi, she’s lying. This girl isn’t exotic looking at all. A tan, dyed hair, fake lips do not equal exotic in my book. I’ve known about her for a long time, before Transformers.. her natural hair color is light brown and she’s really pale, I don’t remember people saying things like “why is this mixed looking girl playing the typical American white ditsy girl” .. Girls who claim to be part Native American and look it are: Jessica Biel, Leann Rimes.. I’d even wager that Taylor Swift is part Native American (yes, even with her blue eyes and blond hair, again, check out Leann Rimes) … something about the shape of her eyes and her facial features seems somewhat mongoloid to me. Anyway, Megan fox is a pretty brunette white girl.. enough said.
