Just a little more info for you on the Yaun's that I know. The the spelling is correct, there is a Yaun pass outside of Berne Switzerland. Our people migrated to the U.S. around 1850. I know of a gravestone where Anna Toman and John Yaun, Berne Switzerland were buried in USA. John Yaun was my Great Great Grandfather. My Great Grandfather was John Yaun also, born in Youngsville New York in 1868 and Died 196 From what I understand about that time there was a famine in Europe.
Many fled and some of our folks went to Scandanavia and Some Went to US and Canada. I know of some Scottish Yaun's one who is a professor at St Andrews University in Scotland. I contacted him while visting Scotland in 1996.
I know that at some point this area was in what is now called Germany
Hope this is of some interest to you.
