I am currently working on a project for Spanish class and we have to make a project about a famous Hispanic. I was looking on the site Encyclopedia Astronautica and it said Scott Crossfield was Hispanic.

The problem is that I need to know what Spanish country he can be traced back to. If you know where he is from, I would really appreciate if you could tell me.

Happy to assist, here is Sally's response:
His mother was half Mexican, half Irish. A direct descendent of a Spaniard named Holquin, a Conquistadores who served under Cortes during the conquest of Mexico.
