I know of no credible primary resource that confirms the Huguenot background, but there are several sources people cite -- a book entitled Noble Births, a book entitled Origins de Families and a book entitled The Trail of the Huguenots (by Reamon).I've read them all and found nothing that confirms the Vermillion ancestors were Huguenot OR French. There are some historical details in the family's American experience that point to possible Huguenot origins. I tried to e-mail you, but my e-mail came back with a delivery note saying the address in your posting is not available. I can tell you some other things, but nothing I have is attributable to any solid primary resource. If anyone else out there has something credible, I'd love to know about it.
