    Uriah’s maternal grandfather was Homer Edward Massey (the son of Crimm Sanders Massey and Maude Lee Mathis). Crimm was the son of Homer Rodolphus Massey and Anna Lee Huey. Maude was the daughter of Henry E. Mathis and Alice.

    Uriah’s maternal grandmother was Helen Emogene Nelson (the daughter of Lawrence Emile Nelson and Helen Emogene Wenzel). Lawrence was the son of Frank Edward Nelson, who was Danish, from Copenhagen, and of Annie/Anna Laura Plash, whose father was German and whose mother was the daughter of a German father and a Swiss-German mother. Helen was the daughter of Joseph Edward Wenzel, whose father was the son of German parents, and of Hela Tabitha Donaldson.

    More distantly, he is also part Irish, Scottish, and Welsh.


    His five-times great-grandmother’s name was Frances Jane Cumbaa. Cumbaa appears to be a Melungeon or Lumbee surname but I can’t trace it to an ancestor who definitely belonged to either of those groups. The earliest of Uriah’s Cumbaa ancestors I could find was this man:

    I don’t believe those ancestors names are accurate. Uriah Shelton is the son of William Allen Shelton and Cynthia Jean Massey. Cynthia was the daughter of Homer Edward Massey and Louise (Goodfellow) Massey. Homer’s parents were Robert L. Massey (the son of Richard Andrew Massey and Nellie E. White) and Mary Knowles (the daughter of Allen Jefferson Noles and Vada Ann. Vincent).
    Paternal grandfather: Gentry A. Shelton was the son of Allin McAtee Shelton and Blanche B. Williams. Allin was the son of William Shelton and Margaret Caroline Bennett. Blanche was the daughter of Darius Williams and Margaret Kenton.
    Paternal grandmother: Mary Ingle was the daughter of Williams Joshua McGill and Mary Adelaide Ingle. Uriah is of English, Scottish, Irish, and German descent.

      You’re saying his maternal grandmother was born in 1900? Obviously the movie’s no good.

        @Follers, I really am sincerely sorry for insulting you (calling you a troll) earlier. If I make a public sincere apology on feedback can 1. we be friends again 2. consider adding my ethnic celebs celebrities 3. consider bringing back ethnic connect. I appreciate what you and ethnic do for this site. I know the two of you are holding a grudge and I don’t blame you. God bless you.
