Christina’s father is English. Christina’s mother is American, and has English, as well as one sixteenth Norwegian, and a small amount of German, ancestry. Christina’s mother is from a family that has lived in the United States for many generations, since the 1600s, on some lines.

Aside from U.S., Christina has U.K. citizenship through her father.

Christina’s maternal grandfather was Gene Calvin Raymond (the son of Ole Johnson Raymond and Jessie May Lawless). Gene was born in Kansas. Ole was the son of Ole Johnson Raymond and Mary Adaline Turner. Jessie was the daughter of Thomas M. Lawless and Jessie K. Earhart.

Christina’s maternal grandmother is Norma Lee Trent (the daughter of Alonzo/Lon Noel Trent and Amy Elmo Garrett). Norma was born in Kansas. Alonzo was the son of John William Trent and Ida May/Mae Burgee. Amy was the daughter of Wiley Bush Garrett and Mattie Jane Cross.

Christina’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to Peninah Symons, who was born c. 1812.

    She looks nice in this picture. Is she a natural redhead? I would think so. Her skin is so pale.

      Its funny because I always thought she was a natural red head but she actually revealed that she is naturally blonde (mostly likely dirty blonde/moussy light brown). She’s been dying her hair red since she was ten years old which is crazy to me but the red hair suits her so well it does look like it can be her natural hair color.

    okay. i have no clue what anyone means when they say someone is “anglo american”. isn’t that basically another way to say a person is “white”? that doesn’t say anything about her ethnic roots in a more specific range, in my opinion.
