  • Notes 
    • Olivier Michel changed his name to Olivier Taillon. The Taillon (Tyo) f amilies says he immigrated to Beaupre, Quebec and lived there in 1667.

      Olivier Michel was born Etienne Michel, twin son of Giles Michel and hi s wife Barbe Emard Michel. He was born in France in late 1645. On or a bout December 5, 1645, one of the twins, Olivier died and was buried in L aRochelle, France. The surviving twin, Etienne was later renamed Olivi er.

      On August 10, 1647, Giles Michel made a will leaving everything to his w ife, Barbe Emard Michel. He also requested that the first name of his o nly surviving son, Etienne, be changed to his deceased twin's name, Oli vier. Giles died shortly after.

      Barbe remarried to Olivier LeTardif on May 21, 1648 at the church of Sa int-Bartheleme de LaRochelle. They, along with 2 year old Olivier, sai led to Canada in the Fall of 1648. Young Olivier received the sacramen t of Confirmation at Chateau-Richer on February 2, 1660 under the name o f Olivier Tardif. It is believed that Barbe, Olivier LeTardif, and you ng Olivier resided in the Quebec, Canada area. Barbe mothered several m ore children after her arrival in New France. The baptisms of Barbe-De lphine, Charles, and Guillaume Tardif are recorded at Quebec.

      Barbe died around 1659. Olivier LeTardif apparently died within a few y ears. On April 30, 1662, Olivier Michel was entrusted to the guardians hip of his uncle, Zacharie Cloutier, and later on to this half-sister, B arbe-Delphine and her husband, Jacques Cauchon. They had married on No vember 23, 1661 at Chateau-Richer. (This seems odd as Olivier was old er than his half-sister.)

      After the death of Olivier LeTardif, his land was divided among his chi ldren, Charles, Guillaume, Barbe-Delphine, and his step-son, Olivier Mi chel. On November 24, 1674, Marie-Madeleine Cauchon, age 16, married O livier Michel, age 25, at the church of Chateau-Richer. They lived for a bout 7 or 8 years at Chateau-Richeau.

      It is uncertain when, but for some unknown reason, after his marriage t o Marie-Madeleine, Olivier changed his surname. He neither kept his na tural father's name, nor did he take his step-father's name. He chose " Taillon".

      Tanquay's and Jette's genealogical dictionaries (information taken from C atholic Church records) list this as "The origin of the name Taillon." I t is unlikely (but unknown) that Taillon was a surname in France before t his family migrated to the Quebec, Canada area.

      TAILLON / TYO NAME Family Roots from France -to Canada -to the United States Information quoted obtained from Carol (Tyo) Ladue of Massena, NY, and used with her permission. "The surname Tyo was changed from the French spelling, Taillon, sometime after 1671. Both are pronounced "Tie-o". Taillon was not the original name either. It was Michel! Between 1642 and 1647 Giles Michel, and his wife Barbe Emard Michel (daugher of Jean Emard and Marie Bineau) brought five children into the world. All were born in France. Antoine died in infancy. Marie (baptized on November 19, 1643) also died in infancy. Olivier and Etienne, twins, were born in late 1645. On or about December 5, 1645 one of the twins, Olivier died and was buried in LaRochelle. The surviving twin, Etienne, was later renamed Olivier. Jeanne (baptized at the Church of Barthelemi, Feb. 21, 1647) died and was buried on June 15, 1647. On August 10, 1647, Giles Michel, made a will leaving everything to Barbe. He also requested that the first name of his only surviving son, Etienne, be changed to his deceased twins name, Olivier. Giles died shortly after. Barbe remarried to Olivier Le Tardif on May 21, 1648 at the church of Saint-Bartheleme de LaRochelle. They along with 2 year old Olivier, sailed to Canada in the fall of 1648. Young Olivier received the sacrament of Confirmation at Shateau-Richer on February 2, 1660, under the name of Olivier Tardif.

      3: It is believed that Barbe, Olivier Le Tardif, and young Olivier resided in the Quebec, Canada area. Barbe mothered several more children after her arrival in New France. The baptisms of Barbe-Delphine, Charles, and Guillaume Tardif are recorded at Quebec. Barbe died around 1659. Olivier Le Tardif apparently died within a few years. On April 30, 1662, Olivier Michel was entrusted to the guardianship of his uncle, Zacharie Cloutier and later on to his half-sister, Barbe-Delphine and her husband, Jacques Cauchon. They had married on November 23, 1661 at Chateau-Richer. After the death of Olivier Le Tardif his land was divided among his children Charles, Guilliaume, Barbe-Delphine and his step-son Olivier Michel. On November 24, 1671, Marie-Madeleine Cauchon, age 16, married Olivier Michel, aged 25, at the church of Chateau-Richer. They lived for about 7 or 8 years at Chateau Richer. It is uncertain when, but for some unknown reason, after his marriage to Marie-Madeleine, Olivier changed his surname. He neither kept his natural father's name nor did he take his step-father's name. He chose "Taillon". Tanquay's and Jette's genealogical dictionaries (information taken from Catholic church records) list this as "the origin of the name Taillon". It is unlikely (but unknown) that Taillon was a surname in France before this family migrated to the Quebec, Canada area."
