Surnames: Tayon, Iott
This is in reference to msg from christy crummy. The records I have indicate that Frank Tayon born January 1850 was married and had six children, Harvey F. (my grandfather), Augusteen "Gus", Gladys M "Dude", Archibald, Cornelia J "Neil", and Clementine M. "Clem". The records from the 1900 Census of St. Louis showed that Frank lived at 804 Vulcan St and had nine children, six living. The record showed that the wife's name was Camelia who was born September 1858. It is possible that Frank was previously married to Caroline Iott as I came across something to the effect that Frank and carolyn Iott were married 1 nov 1882. forget where I came across this). But she could have died and he later remarried Camelia. But I am stuck at Frank Tayon. If you have any other info or if this was helpful, let me know. thanks louis tayon.

Don't know if this reply will reach you since you posted this a few years ago.
I am the great-grandaughter of Clementine Tayon. I remember my father talking about his aunts "Gus" and "Dude".
Clementine Tayon married William Munro Roberts Sr. who helped found the International Telegraph Operator's Union in St. Louis and later on become the lawyer for the Pulitzer family that owned the newspapers. They had one child, William Munro Roberts Jr., who was also an attorney. He married Wilma Rose Fisher, and they had 3 children, one of whom was my dad - William Munro "Monty" Roberts III (1936-1999).
My father always claimed that one of his Tayon ancestors (perhaps Frank) had been a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi, but I don't know if that is true. Supposedly, they were originally from Louisiana.
Clementine Tayon died when I was around 6 years old. She was very eccentric and loved to collect antiques.
Unfortunately, all the older members of the Roberts/Tayon clan are deceased and I'm afraid a lot of information is lost.

Sorry I didn't reply before this, I filed it to do and just forgot about it. I had heard the same info on the Riverboat pilot but can't find anything to confirm. The other names you mentioned are familiar as your father & grandfather. Not too many Tayon's around but can't get info beyond a certain point. If you hear of anything I am still around, and if I find something will pass it along. Thanks for your reply.

Thanks, its some new info. Looks like there have been several versions of the spelling of the name Tayon, Tyon, Taillon, not sure whether or not that was through the person recording the info or what.

Have the feeling that Taillon was original spelling and was changed to Tayon to make it easier for native english speakers to pronounce. That happened frequently with french surnames.
