Simon's obit you posted tells more about this man than most people ever learn about their ancestors.
You're very fortunate.

Probate record for Benjamin 1848 Chatham Co.

1810 Joseph VESTELL, Chatham Co
3-31-1803 Joseph VESTAL m. Elizabeth HAMILTON, Randolph Co NC
Found no further mention of him. If you obtained the info from a person's tree, have you contacted the submitter for the source/proof of the info?

QUAKER RECORDS
1795-11-21 Ruth NEWLIN d/o Eli dec and Sarah m. Benjamin VESTAL, Chatham Co NC, Spring MM.
1801-9-16 Ruth VESTAL m Jacob NEWLIN [both in Parke IN 1850]
Not finding Simon in NC Quaker records
I might add, when folks left the Friends, many became Meth Episc.

Keep in mind marriages took place at the home of the bride, so Simon may not have lived in Vermilion Co. This Co is across the state line from Parke Co IN.

You will probably have to visit a FHC and check deeds, wills/probates, etc for Chatham Co NC.
Many VESTALs of Chatham Co were Quaker. Their records usually contain great info.
