Hi Sally, I have a photo of Abbie Mariah Vermillion's headstone. She is buried in the "Hillsdale Cemetary", sometimes called "Bethesda Cemetary" in Bracken Co., Kentucky. My Dad was Rev. C.N. Vermillion and knew Hezekiah Washburn, heard him speak about the Congo. If my records are right Abbie's Father was Elias Perry Vermillion, also buried in this cemetary. The descendants ,as I have them, are: Giles(1685)>Robert(1725)>Hezekiah(1769)>Elias P.(1818)>Hezekiah(1847)>C.N (1913)> John (1953) According to the headstone Abbie Washburn wife of WM Washburn was born February 4,1847 died April 16,1900.The thing that is puzzling me, Hezekiah her brother's birthdate. He was born 1847 , the story I got from my Dad was Abbie named one of her sons after my G Grandfather"Hezekiah Vermillion". Is it possible they were twins? Or am I reading the wrong date, the other date on the marker is November 1,1856. I'll send the photo. Any help in clearing up the confusion would be greatly appreciated.
