Lewis Wilburn appears in the Claiborne Co TN tax list in 1833.Living next to him is John Vermillion.From that era nearest neighbors tended also to be kin of some sort.So I set out to see if I could find any connection between John Vermillion and/or his kin andthe Wilburn family and or their kin.At best, I can only say that I have come uncovered some clues re: this mystery but certainly cannot claim that I know exactly how Wilburns and Vermillions are related.(Marriage records in Claiborne Co TN are extremely limited until c 1845.)However, many of the Vermillion families are related or appear to be related to other families that I have in my database.
I have no idea if this is useful information or not.But here are some of the surnames that I collected that represent people who married into various Vermillion families. Sometimes more than once or twice too. I will indicate how many times I find Vermillions married to people with same surnames.
Surnames of those whomarried into Vermillion line. (c 1720 to 1850)
