Jason’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his tenth great-grandfather, Michael Ebermann.

Berniece was the daughter of Edwin Sanders Watts, who was born in Liverpool, England, to American parents, and of Clara Irene Lermond.

Claretta was the daughter of John Calvin Girt and Margaret “Maggie” DeBast, whose own parents, Felix Joseph DeBast and Juliette Fernande Flore Anrys, were Belgian emigrants, from Waterloo, Walloon Brabant.

Jason’s maternal grandfather was Daniel Brantley “Dan” Phillips (the son of William Ciphus Phillips and Lucy Ellen Jones). William was the son of John Hugh “Jahu” Phillips and Sarah Elizabeth McKinney. Ellen was the daughter of William Henry Jones and Mary Jane Gamble.

Jason’s maternal grandmother was Irene Vera Wicht (the daughter of Richard Wicht and Mattie Pearl Walker). Richard was the son of German emigrant, Friedrich Richard Wicht, of Königsberg (now Kaliningrad, Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia), and of Maria Emma “Minnie” Herning, whose own parents, Ernest Herning and Auguste Bischoff, were German emigrants. Mattie was the daughter of William Green Walker and Margaret Jane “Jennie” Liles.
