Vigil was born in 1882 in Newton Co. AR. He is the son of Jeremiah Standrige and Telitha Ann Jones. She was the daughter of John Jones and Alafair Meek. She was married first to Lewis Meek who was shot and killed at the Meek Mill on Richland Creek by his brother in law, Alex "Coon" Ross. Coon married Rhoda Meek, Lewis' sister. Coon had ownership of the Mill and it is believed that this is what caused the friction between Ross and Richard and Lewis Meek. Coon killed both men. I (Betty Renfroe) believe this is the reason that Jeremiah decided to move to Idaho in the 1880s. He was disheartened with the fueding on Richland.
Virgil married 3 times. The third time to Grace Horton, in the picture.
