Reverend Jeremiah Vardeman

Reverend Jeremiah Vardeman (1775-1842) was a noted Kentucky Baptist preacher of the late 18th and early 19th century. Jeremiah was a son of the second John Vardeman, grandson of “old” William Vardaman and great-grandson of the original Vardaman immigrant to America. While the biographies are lengthy, the ancestral data contained in them is very brief consisting of only one or two short paragraphs.

Several of these Jeremiah Vardeman biographies have appeared in various publications over the years, see  Early Vardeman History publication for details starting at page 18.

The only records of our Vardaman family origins that have ever been located are found in the various biographies of the Reverend Jeremiah Vardeman and the Lyman C. Draper interviews with his brother, Morgan Vardeman.
