    He is the son of Violeta Busa Calventos and Larry Judd.

    His paternal grandfather was Charles Walter Judd.

    His paternal grandmother was Gretchen Lucille Gunslaus (the daughter of Daniel Willis Gunslaus and Frances Lucille “Fannie” Cordell). Daniel was the son of Daniel Gunsaulus and Belle De Bruler. Frances was the daughter of Daniel Boone Cordell and Ida Eugene Mullen.

    His maternal grandfather was Gervacio Calventos.

    Father’s sister:
    Grandmother’s parents:

    I’m not entirely sure, but I think this is his grandfather:

    If so, then Charles was the son of Gustive “Gus” Jud and Roccina/Rosina. Gustive was born in Hungary, of German descent. Roccina was born in Austria.

    What throws me off is that Charles’ gravestone spells his surname Jud while he is Judd on the 1940 census.

      He appears to have no Portuguese ancestry (thought that would be clear).

      • follers says:

        Why is it clear? Even putting aside his grandfather, he could have Portuguese ancestry on his mother’s side. It would be odd if someone just made up the Portuguese thing a decade ago, though not impossible.

        • madman says:

          It’s said that his father is Portuguese, not that Cris himself is of Filipino and Portuguese descent. So I think everything to do with that claim can be disregarded. If the censuses I found are of his grandfather, then he was of German and Austrian descent on that side. It seems very implausible that he has any Portuguese ancestry.

    I guess he has a Filipino eyes. I always thought he was white for some reason.
