Post Malone is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. His songs include “White Iverson,” “Congratulations,” “Rockstar,” “I Fall Apart,” “Psycho,” “Ball for Me,” “Better Now,” “Sunflower,” “Wow,” “Goodbyes,” “Circles,” “Enemies,” “Take What You Want,” “Motley Crew,” “One Right Now,” “Cooped Up,” “I Like You (A Happier Song),” and “Chemical.” He is also known as Young Stoney. He has appeared in the films Spenser Confidential and Wrath of Man.
Post was born in Syracuse, New York, to Nicole and Richard Lloyd Post, Jr. He grew up in Grapevine, Dallas, Texas, with his stepmother, Jodie, and father, the manager of concessions for the Dallas Cowboys. Post’s ancestry is English, one quarter Polish, along with a small amount of Scottish, and distant Dutch. Through many of his family lines, he has deep roots in upstate New York, eventually going back to Colonial America in the 1600s. He has stated that he is of part Native American descent. It is not clear if this is accurate.
Post is often asked about his ethnic background and being a “white rapper” with cornrows. He credits his father as the one who introduced him to hip hop with Lean Back by Fat Joe being the first hip hop track he listened to.
Post has a daughter with his fiancée.
Post Malone’s patrilineal line can be traced to Stephen Post, who was born, c. 1804, likely in Orange County, New York.
Post’s paternal grandfather is Richard Lloyd Post (the son of Harold Lloyd Post and Phyllis Marie Copp). Harold was the son of Ira Delbert Post and Bessie E. Reynolds. Phyllis was the daughter of Earl Milford Copp and Anna E. Soper.
Post’s paternal grandmother was Nancy/Nancey Joanne Kocenko (the daughter of John Peter Kocenko and Jennie/Jenny Jean Cieslinski). John was born in Pennsylvania, to Polish parents, John M. Kocenko and Antoinette/Anna B. Jurczak. Jennie was born in Poland, the daughter of Joe Cieslenski.
Post’s maternal grandfather is Joseph Frazier (the son of Nelson C. Frazier and Ethel Maud Cook). Joseph was born in Tompkins, Delaware, New York. Nelson was the son of Nelson Crawford Frazier and Gladys C. Kelsey. Ethel was the daughter of Edward William Cook and Lillian Barbara Hicks, who was born in Page Bank, Durham, England.
Post’s maternal grandmother was Diana D. Hinckley (the daughter of Maurice Erwin Hinckley and Nina M. Lockwood). Diana was born in Walton, Delaware, New York. Maurice was the son of Frank E. Hinckley and Margaret Hannah Grant. Nina was born in Miller’s Hollow, New York, the daughter of John Peter Lockwood and Gertrude Howe.

First: why did you put Polish descent first, when Malone is mostly English, has English ancestry that dates back to colonial times (as the article says), and “E” comes befor “P” in alphabetical order? So please, correct this.
Then, I don’t know where you get your information, but he should be of Italian and Native American origin, beside his mostly English/Scottish descent. Familysearch is far from 100% reliable. This, on the other hand,
is an article written by a professional journalist with a degree in journalism, writing for The Sun which states he is of Italian and Native American descent.
Then that’s a problem professional journalists with degrees in journalism have. The Native American thing is something Post said, though is unverified. The Italian thing actually comes from this website, an error I made in confusing Post’s father’s apparent previous wife with his mother. The genealogy is now correct.
Does he have Scottish ancestry outside of his Frazier line?
He isn’t Italian? Or was that a step-parent thing?

Richard Lloyd Post and Nancy Joanne Kocenko married in 1964, 2 years before Austin’s father was born.
Kocenko has to be Ukrainian, right?
Polish, though given the historic connection between the two countries (i.e the Polish Crown) it wouldn’t be surprising to find it in Ukraine, too.
-enko is an exclusively Ukrainian surname suffix, not Polish. His recent ancestors were Polish though, so I assume he might have some Ukrainian ancestry further back.
Post’s paternal grandmother was Nancy/Nancey Joanne Kocenko (the daughter of John Kocenko and Jennie Cieslinski). John was born in Pennsylvania, to Polish parents, John Kocenko and Anna B. Jurczak. Jennie was born in Poland, the daughter of Joe Cieslenski.
it’s definitely Ukrainian surname
