I am Joseph D. Aymond, Jr., from Port Barre, Louisiana. I have been working on The Aymond (Emond) Family Tree and The Aymond Family Book for more than 30 years. I hope to be able to date our family back to the Duc D'Aymon, who had four sons who were Famous Horseman, in Charlemagne's Court. It has been written in the Challot Chronicles that one of the brothers killed a dragon to save a maiden. This story is still told in the French History Books near the Belgian Border. The statement above has been placed on the internet and a teacher in a small University in Northern Ontario, who teaches Canadian Law in french, said that my message on the net caught his attention and the following is what he wrote: "The most ancient reference to the name Aymond (Emond) I have found comes from what we call in french "une chanson de geste", a kind of unwritten story, part of the oral tradition of the middle ages, that was sung. No one knows if this story has some truth. The title of the chansonis "La legende des quatre fils Aymon" or "The Legend of the Four Brothers Aymond". Aymond and Emond have the same pronunciation in french.
