  • When Madison County was first organized in August, 1854, John Vernon was Justice of the Peace, Notary Public, Commissioner and Tax Assessor of Precinct 4 in the southwest corner of the County. He was a minister of the Jehovah's Witness faith. John Vernon was born September 14, 1827, in Manchester, England, the first son of Joseph and Margarett Vernon.

    John and his parents and eleven brothers and sisters left Manchester and sailed from Liverpool, England, on July 12, 1849, on the sail ship, named Bark Blake, for New Orleans, Louisiana. This information was taken from a photostatic copy of the passenger list. The Bark Blake weighed 731 tons.

    As a child, John and his brother, Henry, saw Queen Victoria crowned July 28, 1838. They were invited to visit the queen on the first of May, as a good omen.

    At one time, the boat stood still on the water for three weeks because there was no wind. A number of the crew and passengers died of cholera and were buried at sea.

    While the boat stood still, the sharks came up all around the edge, causing a lot of fright to the passengers.

    They landed in New Orleans, then sailed to Galveston, Texas, then on to Houston.

    From there, they traveled in a 12-yoke ox-wagon to Brazos County, Texas. It took ten days to make the trip. On the way, Joseph and baby George died of chills and fever. No one knows where they are buried.

    Margarett and eleven children were registered in the 1850 census in Brazos County.

    They moved to Milam County and were counted in the 1860 census there.

    Margarett married John Stovall in Milam County. She was buried in Bell County, Texas, in a cemetery called Stoval Valley.

    John left Milam County and went to Grimes County to teach school. There he met Nancy Harriette Diserens. John and Nancy, who was thirteen at the time, were married on September 30, 1854.
    - From "A History of Madison County, Texas", Madison Co. Historical Commission, 1984.
  • John Vernon immigrated with Joseph Vernon and Margarett (?) on 12 July 1849 at New Orleans, Louisiana; sail ship named Bark Blake.
  • In July 1901 at Bryan, Texas, Squire J Vernon and son Edwin went to town.
