Vermillion Family Genealogy Forum
This past summer while passing through Europe I followed up on Doug Vermillion's lead about the Vermillion name being carved on the wall of the Armory in Geneve. As it turns out the Armory/Arsenal burned down in the 1970's and my follow-up with other sources in Geneve for possible records led nowhere. It is very interesting to note that Calvin's home in Geneve was only about 50 meters from the Armory and the main Hugenot church was just around the corner. Thus it is very feasible that the report from Doug's friend about an inscription on the Armory wall by a Huguenot Vermillion may have held some truth.
If anyone wants a photo(s) of the Armory and the Huguenot mosaic, I'll be glad to share.
