I am seeking information related to the father and mother of John H. Vermillion, born about 1834 in North Carolina. In the 1850 Census of Tennessee, this John is listed as the 16-year-old son of Rebecca Vermillion, age 38, born in NC and head of the household. John is listed as a blacksmith in that census. Living in that same household is a Clement (or Clemuel) Lucien, age 38, also listed as a blacksmith born in NC.
I have traced John's migration from Tennessee to Missouri, where he was twice married and had at least four surviving children of those marriages; however, I have been unable to determine the identity of his father or the maiden name of his mother and would appreciate any information anyone can provide.
