Bianca’s paternal grandparents were John J. “Jack” Ryan and Marie T. Allman. Maybe this can help unravel her father’s background.
I believe her maternal grandmother was named Yoko L., and that she was Japanese, but I haven’t found any more information about her (or any of Bianca’s other ancestors).
