    I believe Jacob is 1/32 Irish and 1/32 Danish. David Still (Great-grandfather) was married to Maria Giles (Still) great-grandmother. Maria was the daughter of William Duncan Giles (1913-2009) and Emily Beatrice McCready Mortensen (1915-1973) both from England. Emily was the daughter of Peter Nickoli Mortensen (1876) from Denmark and Emily Beatrice McCready (1877) from Dublin, Ireland.

    however Christine Lavaltrie Tshishereu/Kichera was mostly Innu (not fully)

    Through his great grandfather Aldric Trembley he has English ancestry as well. He has an ancestor named Genevieve Otis whose father was born in New Hampshire in 1682. Cant be sure, but probably her father was taken in one of the Indian attacks around that area at the time.
