In Reply to: Re: VERMILLION OF NORTH CAROLINA & VIRGINIA by Ruth V. Gamble of 1040

Hello Ruth:
Yes, that makes sense. Although I know it was common practice to place orphans into
servitude as well. I need to find Giles'
parents, I think Wales was merely his debarkation port and that he was from Scotland. I say that because his grandsons were Presbyterians, William was a minister.
Laningham's History of SW VA lists them as being from Scotland. I like the beans story.
And speaking of stories, I think there is a good saga to be told about the Vermillions.
