My Great-Grandfather (by Grandmother's father) came from China to Puerto Rico during the 1800's. As I was told, he came via Panama, and worked in road construction.
The Yon family lived in Cayey and Guayama, two small towns in the Puerto Rico mountains. Some of them moved to Bayamon, a city near San Juan.
About a week ago, I met a distant relative whos last name is Yon. He has family in the states. If I remember well, his Grandfather's name is Lucas.
We are interested in knowing more about the Yon family.
Hope we can talk soon!
