The surname “O’Brien” is of Irish origin.

True’s maternal grandfather, Ricardo/Simonas Guillermo Domasin, was born in 1938 in Los Angeles. Ricardo’s father, Pastor “Peter” Loresca Domasin, was born, in 1902, in Panglao, Bohol, in the Philippines. Pastor was the son of Gerónimo Domasin y Lorejo, or Gerónimo Lorejo Domasin in Filipino, and of Cirila Loresca y Domaluan, or Cirila Domaluan Loresca in Filipino. A picture of Pastor can be seen here.
Ricardo’s mother, Evelyn Olivia Bain, was born in 1910 in Los Angeles; Evelyn was True’s great-grandmother. Evelyn was African-American, and she and her parents, Thomas Edward Bain (born in Kansas, to Gabrel Bain and Isabella/Belle Johnson) and Wilma “Willie” Frances Peterson (born in Arkansas, to William F. Peterson and Nannie Hall), are listed as either African-American or, sometimes, as “Mulatto”, in census records. A picture of Evelyn can be seen here.
True’s maternal grandmother was Laurita Lee Hinkle (the daughter of William Hicks Hinkle and Edith Laurita Jones). Laurita was born in Texas, and had English, German, Scots-Irish (Northern Irish), and Scottish, ancestry. William was the son of Joshua Madison Hinkle and Ella Malona Payne. Edith was the daughter of Charles Kirby Jones and Ethel Effie Smith.
True’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her fourth great-grandmother, Penelope “Phenina” Watson.
