Johannes Vermilje married Sarah Odell on Oct. 29, 1713. On the same day, his sister Hannah Vermilye married her brother John Odell. The marriages were recorded at the Manhattan, Reformed Dutch Church of NY.
Johannes/John Vermilyea then married Marytje DeBruyn/Brown Bussing, the widow of Johannes Bussing. (Johannes Bussing was the nephew of Johannes Vermilyea, as it happened.) This must have happened about 1735, but no record of the event has yet surfaced.
