You're 100% right. Penelope's brother was Francis Burch Vermillion. Robert Vermillion's mother was Eliz.Burch, d/o Francis Burch & Allie Owen. Penelope then married there son, Francis Burch (Jr.) who was her first cousin. Confusing enough? Francis & Penelope had Eli, Nicodemus & another Francis (I think). They are the ones I'm looking for. Am heading for Upper Marlboro, Prince Georges tomorrow. Wish me luck and thanks a lot Chris.
