Verrill

I am a descendent of the Verrill's of Patch Mountain.  I am trying to piece together their geneology.  My grandmother was Ruby Verrill Rogers and she passed away in August 1934 when my mother and her twin were born.  One twin lived with the uncle and grandfather, George and Charles while the other (my Mom) went to live with an unrelated person (Celia Davis) in Lovell.

Would love any information on the Verrills.
