Elley’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her ninth great-grandfather, Jacques Duhée.

Elley’s paternal grandfather is Willie Joseph “Bill” Duhé III (the son of Willie Joseph “Bill” Duhé, Jr. and Angelina “Jennie” Lovetro). Elley’s grandfather Willie was born in Louisiana. Elley’s great-grandfather Willie was the son of Willie Joseph Duhé and Léonie Millet. Elley’s great-great-grandfather Willie’s maternal fifth great-grandmother, Verena Hirtzel, was Swiss-German, from Pfäffikon, Canton of Zürich. Also, his maternal fourth great-grandfather, Heinrich Albert Schexnayder, was Belgian, from Brussels. Léonie’s paternal fourth great-grandfather, Christopher Johannes (or Jean Christphe in French) Huber, was also Belgian, from Leuven, Flemish Brabant. Also, one of Léonie’s paternal eighth great-grandfathers was Zacharie Cloutier (c. 1590-1677), a prominent early Québec settler. Leónie’s paternal third great-grandfather, Giovanni Battista Manuel (or Jean Baptiste Manuel in French) Bacas, was Italian, from Genoa. Jennie was the daughter of Italian emigrants, Antonio “Anthony” Lovetro and Angelina Ferrara.

Elley’s maternal grandfather is Colonel Walker “Bud” Scott, Jr. (the son of Colonel Walker Henderson Scott, Sr. and Dorothy May Davis). Elley’s grandfather Colonel was born in Cattlesburg, Kentucky. Elley’s great-grandfather Colonel was the biological father of criminal and cult leader Charles Manson, and was the son of Walker Henderson Scott and Gladys Ella Cline. Two of Elley’s great-great-grandfather Walker’s sixth great-grandparents, Sven Rambo and Ann Christian, were ethnic Swedish and Manx, respectively. His twice ninth great-grandfather, William McChristen, was also a Manx, from Milntown. Dorothy was a World War II veteran, and was the daughter of Melvin Davis and Dora Castle. Melvin’s paternal great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Nakitika, was a Cherokee Native American. Melvin’s maternal great-great-grandfather and Dora’s paternal great-grandfather, Inman Castle, was 5/8 Shawnee Native American.

    This might be her paternal grandmother.

    Barbara was the daughter of Marvin Y Kennedy Sr. and Sarah Ruth Wilson. Marvin was the son of George Kennedy, who was of Irish descent, and Emma M Hammac. Sarah was the daughter of William Walter Wilson and Elizabeth Elvis Barnes.

    ” 1/4096 Swedish, as well as distant Cornish”

    More distant than 1/4096 Swedish?

    Wasn’t there a proposed cut-off at 1/2048 (and I think that’s too permisive)?

      Well, not everybody follows the cut-off. I think many profiles like this one needs some cleaning, not only when it comes to boringly small fractions, but also phrasings like “65/512 Italian” instead of the more estethically pleasing “around 1/8th Italian”. And of course the listing of ethnicities in alphabetical order instead of size (like she would be even close to as much Breton or Dutch as she is English…).

    I forgot to put Dorothy’s middle name May.
