Taylor Negron was an American actor, comedian, painter, and playwright. His mother, Lucy (Rosario), was Puerto Rican, and his father, Conrad Negron, was born in New York, to Puerto Rican parents. His cousin was singer-songwriter Chuck Negron.

Taylor’s paternal grandparents were Conrado/Conrad Negron (the son of Pablo Negron y Rivera and Camelia Leon or Josefa Ortiz y Castillo) and Flora/Florence Vidal. Conrado was born in Juana Diaz. Flora was born in San German.

Taylor’s maternal grandparents were Antonio Rosario and Mary.

Taylor was sometimes said to have Jewish, Italian, and/or Iranian ancestry. On some occasions, he said that his father was of Jewish heritage, although in one interview, he stated that his mother was Jewish. It does not appear that either of Taylor’s parents were of Jewish, Italian, or Iranian background (at least not in recent generations).

Could this be his grandfather’s birth record:

My Spanish is not that good, but from what I gather Conrado Negron y Rivera was born in Ponce on 20th of February 1899 to declarant and his wife Remigia Rivera.
His paternal grandparents were Bartolo Negron and Ramon Santiago from Ponce (deceased).
His maternal grandparents were Clemente River and Aurora Fernandez from Ponce (deceased).

Puerto Rican isn’t an ethnicity! I doubt that he has indigenous blood (or at least recent ancestry). He’s a full Spaniard from Puerto Rico, like Ricky Martin. Could also have had Italian and Sephardic Jewish in him too.

I don’t know if you can look more white than him, pitbull looks completely european.

“Some European roots”? Yeah like Spanish. American’s stereotype of how people in Puerto Rico look like is so off base.

come on shut up

i have seen so many puerto ricans in the USA and none of them looked the way TAYLOR NEGRON looked like

they were darker and had brown eyes and black hair
come on. You wann tell me that all puerto ricans or most of them look like pitbull or negron ?

I believe the surname Negron may come from Italian “Negroni”, also Ricky Martin has this surname (from Corsica) in his tree


andrew November 29, 2015 at 12:28 pm

it means Taylor Negron has likely some Corsican ancestry as many Puerto Ricans

Camilo December 24, 2015 at 1:14 pm

The surname Negrón comes to Puerto Rico via the Canary Islands.
