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 grandparents were named 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).

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

      There are definetely more white Puerto Rican’s on the island because they tended to be wealthier/Spanish descended
      ruling classs and had no reason to migrate. Discrimination is rampant in Latin America and Puerto Rico is no exception. When you go to PR you see way more whites and in the mainland you say way more mixed and Afro-Puerto Ricans.

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