Looking for Tauls in California...look no further.I have much geneaological information about the family.My mother, Cassandra Taul Sharp, was born in 1940 in Fresno, CA, of Horace Wayne Taul, who born in Walker, Missouri in 1910.Horace's father was Horace Bennie Taul, from Kentucky.Horace Sr.'s father was Discius Taul(probably an immigrant from Denmark) who married Loula Gilkie. Denmark is the only country in Europe with any notable Taul population. (I thoroughly checked this fact out in my travels throughout Europe; I have the data to back it up.) I did extensive research in Denmark about the name Taul.It derives from the Danish town of Taulov, which means in Danish "plaque on a high point," hence the word "Taul" means "plaque".Danish genealogists told us that Danish immigrants to America would often adopt the name of the town they came from, often shortening it, as can been surmised from the change from Taulov to Taul.Another reason to assume that Discius was of Danish origin is that around the estimated time of his birth, many, many Danish immigrants were coming to America, settling in the Midwest (as he did), and often bearing the fashionable Latinized names of the higher class.Discius is Latinized, and so is the names of his son and grandson, Horace. To get back to Tauls in CA, my mother's sister was born a Taul and now lives in Davis, CA.My mother's brother is a Taul who moved a decade ago to Arizona. If you would like to learn more about other Taul research I've done, please email me.I'd be especially interested in talking about the Danish roots of the name Taul.
