Eminem’s roots can be found in Scandinavia through his mother Debbie Nelson and in South Wales through his father Marshall Bruce Mathers II.
But Eminem has mostly Scottish blood running through his veins. On both sides (maternal and paternal side), Scottish roots can be found.
Returning to the seventh generation on the paternal side, Peter Mathers from Pennsylvania married a Scottish woman named Isabella (last name unknown). On the maternal side, Scottish roots can be found in the Marshall family in the sixth generation: Ailsa Mc Allister from Edingburgh emigrated to the United States, precisely to New York in 1870.
Most of the Mathers have worked as farmers in the state of Missouri.
Marshall Mathers I, Eminem’s paternal grandfather, has been working as an assistant hotel manager at the Plainsman Hotel in St. Joseph Missouri and his wife Rae has worked at the Del Cornonado hotel in guest services.
When Eminem’s paternal grandmother, Rae, recently died in 2002 from Alzheimer’s disease, Marshall Mathers II discovered interesting documents related to his famous son, such as a Marshall Christmas card addressed to his grandmother Rae. Etymology of the name Mathers Mathers means reaper or reaper. History of the name Mathers
The name Mathers is related to the Scottish Barclay clan. The Barclay family settled in a place called Mathers in Scotland in the 13th century. The Mathers’ story can be traced back to an English immigrant Theobald from Berkeley and his son, who owns the Mathers estate. Alexander was the first to use the Mathers surname. Pronunciation of the surname Mathers
