    Correction. I found out some info on his maternal grandparents. His grandfather was born James T. Sheets the son of Frank Sheets and Vera Schmitz. He got the surname Raymond from his step father. Frank’s wife was Doris Allene Dunlevy the daughter of Finley Dunlevy and Henrietta Eich. Through Finleys mother’s line Josh has Swiss ancestry as well.

    Correction. He is also Irish and French as well. The Irish comes from the Baskin family who married into the Coalter family and the French is from Charles Wilson’s mother whose father’s parents were both members of the Naudain family originally from France.
