Austin Mahone is an American singer and songwriter. He is the son of Michele Lee (Demyanovich) and Charles Edgar Mahone.

Austin’s father’s ancestry was heavily English and German, including several lines of recent immigrants from Germany; he also had some French, and remote Welsh, ancestry. Austin’s mother is of Rusyn-Slovak and German descent.

Austin’s patrilineal line can be traced back to his great-great-great-grandfather, William F. Mahone, who was born in Alabama, the son of an Alabama-born father, William Crosby Dawson Mahone, and a Georgia-born mother, Zenora Flournoy Dillard.

Austin’s paternal grandfather is Charles Edgar Mahone (the son of Charles Edgar Mahone and Norma Francelle DeViney). Austin’s grandfather Charles was born in Texas. Austin’s great-grandfather Charles was the son of Charles Edgar Mahone and Marie/Mary Denise Perry; Marie was born in Gironde, France. Norma was the daughter of Thomas Elmer DeViney and Phoebe Candacy Curtis.

Austin’s paternal grandmother is Sue Ann Freeze (the daughter of Franklin Harris Freeze and Vernell Cason). Sue was born in Texas. Franklin was the son of Hugh Horace Freeze and Cleo Estelle Adams. Vernell was the daughter of James Bennett/Ben Cason and Derond Houston.

Austin’s maternal grandfather is John William Demyanovich. John is likely of Rusyn descent from Slovakia.

Austin’s maternal grandmother was Mary Loretta Voegler (the daughter of Joseph Francis Voegler and Mary Elizabeth Knoll). Austin’s grandmother Mary Loretta was born in Pennsylvania, and was of German descent. Joseph was the son of Joseph A. Voegler and Sophia Barth. Mary Knoll was the daughter of Raymond Augustine Knoll and Loretta Theresia Franz.

Austin’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his great-great-great-great-grandmother, Helena Anstadt, an ethnic German who was born, c. 1834, in Schwemburg, Alsace, France.

    What famous people of mixed Irish and Italian descent does Austin Mahone remind you of?

    • andrew says:

      Nobody. This is a side effect of globalization and Internet. A wave of non-European keyboard warriors who gives lessons about what is true white/European. Really funny.

      • andrew says:

        How can you have a blond beard if you’re black-haired? That is what you stated.

      • madman says:


        I’m more surprised he’s actually old enough to have a beard. His comments make him seem like he’s around eight years old.

      • andrew says:

        Good point

        No, I think Neil Tennant might have a point about Austin Mahone looking Irish/Italian. My father’s older brother’s, ex-wife’s, first husband is half Irish half Italian. He has similar physical features to Austin Mahone. His name is Gary!

        @jackson9 your father’s brother’s ex wife’s husband is most likely more than just irish and italian. Perhaps english and some German. Austin Mahone doesn’t look like any mixed Irish and Italian person I’ve ever meet. Also how is he considered “a little dark”? He seems fair/olive toned. Not at all dark. I’ve seen Welsh people and Danish people darker than him.

      • jackson9 says:

        @Italiano90, I don’t think Austin Mahone is dark but I agree with Neil Tennant that he does have the same look as many half Irish half Italians as Gary and many others that I know personally with ancestry from Ireland and southern Italy. I guess I am agreeing based off my own personal experience. Pretty much every Caucasian person I know is either Italian, Irish, or Ashkenazi Jewish. Most are mixtures of 2 or 3 of these ethnicities.
