Like Edward, I have a John Vermillion (no middle initial) b. 1838 or 1839 in Barry County, MO the son of Reuben Vermillion and Elizabeth Compston Vermillion, who had a son, John (b. 1850s in MO.)While I have no siblings for John (b. 1850s), I do have info on the previous generations.If you believe this could be your relative, let me know and I'll e-mail you what I have in my records.
