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 and songwriter Chuck Negron.
Taylor’s paternal grandfather was Conrado/Conrad Negron (the son of Pablo Negron y Rivera and Camelia Leon or Josefa Ortiz y Castillo). Conrado was born in Juana Díaz.
Taylor’s paternal grandmother was named Flora/Florence Vidal. Flora was born in San Germán.
Taylor’s maternal grandfather was named Antonio Rosario.
Taylor’s maternal grandmother was named 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.
Puerto Ricans dont have Italian or Sephardic Jew DNA. The only European DNA they normally have are Canarian, Galician and Corsican.
