CORRECTION Welsh, English, some German, distant French, Dutch

His daughter Victoria mentioned it in an interview that his ancestor that came to America was of Welsh ethnicity.

Interestingly, a group of family trees on ancestry.com list Vincent’s “Price” ancestor as having been a man named Johannes Price, who was born, c. 1700, in Siegen-Wittgenstein, Germany. So I don’t know that they were ever Welsh.
