Tristan’s paternal grandfather was the son of Charles Leabu and Irene Isabelle Payne. Charles was the son of Romanian parents, George Leabu and Eva Moian. Irene was the daughter of Charles E. Payne and Alice Fisher, whose maternal grandparents were Swedish.
Tristan’s paternal grandmother is named Linda McMaster (the daughter of Henry J. McMaster and Dolores).

Carol Ann Nystel’s younger siblings’ mother was Louise Gunderson. I can’t find the marriage record of Archie and Eleanor Marie Green, who is listed as Carol’s mother, nor can I find her anywhere else. Anyone having any success? I suspect she might’ve also been of Scandinavian descent.
I think this very likely is Henry McMaster, but I wasn’t sure enough to add it:
Any finally, anything on grandfather Teddy?
