Re: Looking for parents of George Vermillion

I cannot be certain of the parents of your George Vermillion, but I do have a possibility for you to investigate.
In Russell County, VA in 1833 Jesse Vermillion, Jr. (b. 1795) and Nancy Obedience Elliott (b. 1808) had a son named George W. Vermillion, their third child of seven. I have never been able to locate this George W. Vermillion's marriage records or children . . . but the birthdate is consistent with what I found in the 1870 Census of Millwood, Guernsey County, Ohio -- which contains YOUR George and Elizabeth.
The 1870 census shows George (b. 1833 in VA age 36) as a stone mason. Elizabeth (b. 1836 in VA age 33)is listed as his wife. Children listed in 1870 included:
Emma b. 1857 in VA (age 12)
Mary b. 1860 in VA (age 9)
Charles b. 1861 in OH (age 8)
George b. 1862 in OH (age 7)
Phebe b. 1865 in OH (age 4)
Ida b. 1867 in OH (age 2)
Edward b. 1868 in OH (age 1) [I assume this to be your Francis E. from the 1880 Census)

The 1880 Census of Oxford, Guernsey County, OH does not list Emma and Mary (probably they were already married) but lists the other children and additionally lists the following:
Jasper b. abt. 1872 (age 8)
James b. abt. 1875 (age 5)
Elmer b. abt. 1879 (age 10 mos.)

Again, I cannot be sure this George W. son of Jesse Jr. and Nancy O. Vermillion is YOUR George, but it is worth investigating as a possibility. If you find an answer to your question, please notify me of your findings.
Thank you,
Douglas M. Vermillion
