Ashlee’s paternal grandmother was Joyce Alice Adams (the daughter of Grady Ward Adams and Sallie Maud/Maude Roberts). Joyce was born in Kaufman, Kaufman Co., Texas. Grady was the son of Silas S. Adams and Frances Elizabeth “Fannie” Valentine. Sallie was the daughter of Daniel A. Roberts and Sallie/Sally Tyner.

Ashlee’s maternal grandfather was Acy Edward Drew, Jr. (the son of Acy Edward Drew and Thelma Dee McClendon). Ashlee’s grandfather Acy was born in Houston, Harris, Texas. Acy was the son of Stonewall Drew and Emma Cliff. Thelma was the daughter of Wade Hampton McClendon and Lou/Lue Ella Jackson.

  3. Roger Is My Lover says:

    Dude, they are only 6% (1/16th) or less Native. Why is it a surprise that she looks like a normal white girl when she is white?

  4. R says:

    I know they share the same blood/ancestry ,but if you really look at their faces you can tell more of the Native American in Jessica’s face:nose,cheek bones,face more angular.Aslee looks just like your typical Scotish girl

      Yes . . . it is no coincidence that Jessica and her family claimed to be 1/16th Native after she made that ‘Indian giver’ comment . . . No coincidence at all.

      Neither one looks Native American.

      • Misaaaaaa says:

        And I doubt you can see that one digit percentage of Native in Jessica. I am pretty sure the 96% is what is influencing most, if not all, of her phenotype.

    A bit on the boring side,but the Native American part is still cool.
