    Still looking into maternal grandfather BUT maternal grandmother was half German half Irish. Beverly Dolores Bohn (1931) was the daughter of Stewart J. Bohn and Loretta Edna Miller. Stewart was born in Minnesota, to Jacob Dietrich Bohn Jr. and Jessie Mae McAfee. Jacob was of 100% German descent and Jessie was of 100% Irish descent. Loretta was born in 1911 in Minnesota to Peter Miller and Lataiska Boyle. Peter’s parents were German and Lataiska was likely of Irish heritage with a surname such as Boyle.
    As of now she should be listed as 50% African-American, 12.5% German, 12.5% Irish, 25% English, possibly other….
