I was very interested to see that your possibly Jewish grandfather's mother was named Apollonia.
I have a 7th great grandmother, Apollonia Israel, born in Bassenheim, Germany c. 1655.  The surname suggests her family was once Jewish, but I can't find evidence of that.  They seem to have been Catholics by the mid-17th century.   
Does anyone else have examples of a Jewish woman named Apollonia?
