Allison’s maternal grandfather was Richard Joseph Scagliotti (the son of Joseph Scagliotti and Ermenia Bonesio). Richard was born in California, of Italian descent. Ermenia was born in Cardona, Piedmont, North-West Italy, the daughter of Pietro Fidele Bonesio and Massimina Ferrarino.

Allison’s maternal grandmother was Betty May Allison (the daughter of Clyde H. Allison and Ida M. Hoelscher). Betty was born in California. Clyde was the son of Jessie/Jesse R. Allison and Mary A. Power. Ida was the daughter of Adolph George Hoelscher, who was of German descent, and of Louise Josephine Young, who was born in Massachusetts, to Irish parents.

Various web sites state that Allison has Jewish ancestry. It is not clear if that is accurate.
