Biographical Note

It is necessary to make a few comments about the Tays' family members' names. First, Linda Tays Dunn was born Herlinda, however, most of the photographs identify her as Linda. The archivist assumed that Linda was how she was known, and this was a good reason to file under Linda instead of Herlinda.

The Tays Family had at least three of its members named Joseph W.: Reverend Joseph W. Tays (Linda Tays Dunn's grandfather), Joseph W. Tays, Jr. (Linda Tays Dunn's uncle), and Joseph Wilkins Tays II (Linda Tays Dunn's brother). In a photograph from 1968, there are two different people also identified as Joseph W.: Joseph W. Tays, Sr., and Joseph W. Tays, Jr. Also, a previous genealogy line shows that Eugene A. H. Tays and Rosaura Vega Tays had two sons, Clement I and Clement II. Photographs of the Tays children identify only as Clement. A further research of the genealogy of the Tays family and maybe of Kinds Tays Dunn's correspondence would help to clarify this confusion.

The Tays lived in Sinaloa, Mexico and California. Photographs of their house in Mexico are identified as Casa Tays, which means "Tays House." Such identification is kept in the finding aid. The family house in California is identified in the finding aid as Tays Family house.
