Me and a group of Vermillion cousins are trying to untangle the knot of the DC/MD Vermillions who never headed out west.We all go back to Giles b. 1685 - but getting there is a big puzzle as for whatever reason, there's not a lot out there on these folks.Hopefully, in time, that will all change!!
I don't know the parents of Eliza - but Dennis might be a good guess as his wife was Eliza and they were married on 6/1/1826.But it's just a guess. Dennis' parents were John Vermillion (his parents are unknown) and Henrietta Nally (daughter of Dennis Nally and Rebecca).Dennis was indentured by his mother in 1811 to a Mr. Owner at the Navy Yard after his father, John died about 1808.His indenture is online. http://genealogytrails.com/washdc/apprentice.htmlhttp://genealogytrails.com/washdc/apprentice.html
This is not my line - but for a very long time we were tangled up and just recently figured out that we're not connected to this line.
Otho had 5 sons, but I'm not sure about any daughters....still working on Otho's parents too.He was a Tailor in DC in 1837 and he's buried in Congressional Cemetery - his obituary is on their website - but it doesn't give much info.
I just started a Facebook page for Vermillions of MD and DC (just search for it on the facebook site)I think that if more of us that have (so far) unattached roots to Giles put our heads together, we may be able to help each other out.It will take a long time to get everyone to come out of the woodwork - so if you know anyone, please pass the info. along!!
My line is Nicholas Vermillion and his son Alphonso Rudolphus Vermillion.We have no idea who Nicholas' parents are and have been searching for years!!!
I hope that helps if you haven't already figured it out.I'm curious to know!!
