Basically, I am interested in fitting my immediate family into the greater Vermillion lineage.I was able to find my great Grandparents using my Grandfather's older brother's (John Jr) info from the Kansas legislature website, but this is as far back as I can go now.I would appreciate any insight or advice in expanding beyond what I have now.
Below is a partial tree from me back to John Sr.:
John Vermillion Sr (b abt 1891) + Mabel Vermillion (b Oct 30, 1892) > Lived in Independence, Montgomery, KS - John Vermillion Jr (b 1922) > Kansas Congressman 1957-1980 - George H Vermillion (b 1925) + Barbara Hoffman Vermillion (b 1924) -- David H Vermillion -- Deborah Vermillion -- Douglas Boyd Vermillion --- Sean Douglas Vermillion (Me) - Unknown younger brothers
Also, I found a Vermillion family crest while cleaning out my Grandparents' house today and it looked fairly old.The shield is split into 4 different fields, if that is the correct term.The upper left is red with a windmill; the upper right is green with 2 S-shaped snakes facing away from each other; the lower left is yellow with 2 black birds (crows?); the lower right is blue with a horizontal, silver, wavy bar.I just was wondering if this matched anything anyone else had.The crests I found online didn't match this at all.
