My Great-grandfather came to Texas as a young man in 1875. He bought a ranch across the flats from Capote Peak in the southern part of the Sierra Viejo Mountains in Presidio County. In 1890, he built a house in Marfa and planted the acorn of a burr oak in the front yard. That acorn grew into the giant oak tree that still shades the front yard of the old homestead today, measuring 65 feet tall with a diameter of over 12 feet.

My grandmother came from an old family of Norman descent. Their history is documented back to 1066. She brought the nobility, faith, and love of her legacy into my present.

I come from a long line of gamblers. A map dating back to the 1600's represents the world when the first Vermillion traveled alone to America, at the age of 13. He worked as an indentured servant to a wealthy landowner and eventually earned his freedom. Ever since, Vermillion men and women have risked the unknown to make their dreams come true.
