In the Dictionairre Genealogique, the entire line is Taillon.
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! I have also come across Taillon pronounced "Tal-yon" and "Tal lon" There may be other pronunciations.
All of their children were born in France.
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.
There are three published books on the family:
