I can tell you a little about my surname (Tachon). I don't believe
there were any Tachons in Wisconsin prior to the second decade of this
century. My grandfather and grandmother emigrated from Jersey, Channel
Islands in 191? Prior to that, the clan was located in Normandy and
prior to that, in the Marseilles area. We are in contact with a distant
relative in Meung-sur-Loire, France.
My grandfather arrived prior to my grandmother. He came over on a ship
load of cattle which was quarantined in New Jersey for 30 days. He
wanted to be a cowboy and settle in Colorado, but he ran out of money in
I currently reside in Connecticut. Feel free to contact me.
