Either Gary Ayres or his wife, Ruth, is related to Texas Jack Vermillion. Gary mentioned that to me a couple of years ago but the name Vermillion did not ring a bell.Ga5ry is also mixed into the Coffee/Graves/Cleveland ancestors in some way. Those families intermarried so much it is virtually impossible to sort them out.
Gary Ayres is the Commander of the John T. Coffee Camp #1934, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Humansville, Missouri.
