57 (Medical):Truncus arteriosus is a type of heart defect in which a baby is born with one large blood vessel—normally there are 2—that receives blood from both the heart's ventricles. This single blood vessel mixes oxygen-rich blood with oxygen-poor blood, which normally remain separate.

Babies who are born with truncus arteriosus usually die of heart failure unless they are treated very soon after birth. This condition can be corrected with surgery to divide the single large blood vessel into 2 separate blood vessels so that blood can circulate properly.

59 (Medical):University of Kentucky Archeology Research:
Lindsey's skeletal remains offer specific details of his childhood health, adulthood, and cause of death. Lindsey's dentition was in a poor state at the time of his death. He had lost nearly 60% of his teeth, and of those that remained 30.8% were diseased. Lindsey's few remaining teeth exhibit Linear Enamel Hypoplasia (LEH) a condition that speaks to his childhood health. LEH represent "lines of growth cessation" during childhood that are caused by an extreme stress like infectious disease (Hillson1996). During such disease episodes the body can be depleted of nutrients and, in children, this often results in the cessation of growth in the struggle to recover from the infection. When a child survives the disease episode, normal growth resumes but LEH leave a permanent lesion on the dentition. Thus, LEH are significant markers of survival that demonstrate successful adaptation to stresses in the environment. Stature is a general measure of adaptation during growth and development (Larsen 1997). The fact that Lindsey grew to nearly six feet tall, greater than the contemporary standard for American men, further demonstrates that he not only successfully adapted to the disease environment but also achieved his full genetic potential. Lindsey's skeletal remains also provide insights to his cause of death. Radiographic analysis demonstrates an active mastoid sinus infection (build up of active sclerotic bone) at the time of death. Cranial sinus infections are indicators of upper respiratory disease, which if not the cause of death, often act as opportunistic infections when the immune system is compromised and contribute to the cause of death (Roberts and Manchester 1995). The sinus lesions concur with Lindsey's cause of death, which was listed as pneumonia in the 1870 Federal Census death schedules.

Samuel Holme's skeletal remains provide equally compelling insights to his life. Samuel was edentulous and buried with gold plated false teeth. Tooth extraction was a popular treatment for tooth decay among late 19th- century dentists once anesthesia became widely available (Magner 1992). From this we can surmise that Samuel had significant tooth decay problems and survived the concomitant high pathogen burden until the diseased teeth were extracted (Hillson 1996). Samuel reached a height of 69 inches, the average for contemporary American men. This indicates, as it did for Lindsey, that Samuel achieved his genetic potential despite the infectious disease environment he experienced as a child. Samuel's skeletal elements also provide a key to his cause of death. Samuel lived to 58, which exceeded the life expectancy at the close of the 19th century. Samuel's vertebrae exhibit lesions that suggest an early tuberculosis infection. Tuberculosis can infect any part of the body, and involves the skeletal system in only 12% of active cases (Auferheide and Rodriguez-Martin 1998). Samuel Holmes' obituary offers two possible explanations for his death (Interior Journal: 8-9-1872). While returning from a trading trip from the west, Samuel was found at a train stop in Rushville, Indiana, in a disoriented state. Although foul play was suspected, it is unlikely since Samuel carried over a thousand dollars in cash on his person. The other suggested possibility was a stroke, which seems a more parsimonious explanation. Tuberculosis is likely to have contributed to his death since the disease commonly affects the brain (Purtillo and Purtillo 1999). Whether Samuel died of a stroke or if his TB infection contributed to that attack is unknown. It is clear, however, that both Samuel and Lindsey suffered mortal conditions, tuberculosis and pneumonia, that counted among the leading causes of death for the time (Leavitt and Numbers 1997).

William Edward Harris

William "Bill" Edward Harris, resident of Vancouver, WA, passed away with family by his side, at the age of 80. Bill was born in Libby, MT, the oldest of 3 children born to the late William Harris Sr. and Pansey Sloan and was raised in Camas, WA from the age of 6 on. He graduated from Camas High School in 1953 where he was a member of the Navy Reserve. Bill met the love of this life, Lavine Potter, originally at the age of 9 and over the years they fell in love and married right after high school in 1954. Bill enlisted in the Army and was stationed in California as well as at Fort Rich in Alaska. After his service with the military, Bill returned to Washougal, WA to raise his growing family with Lavine and settle into a beautiful life. At this time he began working at Crown Zellerbach Mill in Camas where he stayed until he retired. Bill loved golfing, watching an array of sports and cheering on his grandchildren and great-grandchildren at all of them. Most importantly, he treasured being with his family and enjoying the wonderful friends he and Lavine shared and cherished. Bill was the beloved husband of Lavine Harris for over 60 years. He will forever be remembered by his devoted brothers, John and Walt Harris; beloved children, Debbie Morris, Darsi Hall and Dirk Harris; treasured grandchildren, Jeremy and Jennifer Morris, Brett and Robyn Morris, Cody and Kristin Morris, Matt Morris, Samantha and Brian French, Garrett Hall, Ryan Harris, Alexa Harris and Lyndsey Harris; and beautiful great-grandchildren, Taylor Morris, Carson Morris, Braden Morris, Ella Morris, Brittany Peck, Bailey Morris, Jaylen French, Payton Morris, Brooklyn Morris and Quintin French, who adored their Poppy; along with countless other friends and family whom were blessed to know him. "Bill touched the lives of many people with his caring heart and maintained his trademark sense of humor all the way to the end." Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Thurs., Jan. 29th at 2:00 p.m. at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 805 SE Ellsworth Rd., Vancouver WA 98664. A reception will follow the service at the church.

My Dad, Foster, went to a Presbyterian college in Greenwood, South Carolina. He was born on a plantation down there. I think he could have been a pastor. He was engaged but she died of malaria. He came down with malaria but didn't pass away. He took a little white pill at dinner all his life. He left South Carolina to find a place that was good to live without water. At that time the Mississippi river was the dividing line of the United States. He looked all over and Williamstown, Kentucky just had a little fishing pond so he settled there.

T. and D. M. BLANCHETT, of Gallatin, was present as was a Covington niece."

"January 17, 1907:
The last will of H.L.D. BLANCHET was probated; he directs that his estate be converted to cash; leaves $1000 to Williamstown Cemetery co. and same to Father Bealer for the Catholic Church at Blanchett; 1/2 of the remainder of the estate goes to his sister, Miss Tise BLANCHET and the other 1/2 to the children of his other brothers and sisters."

"Souvenir Edition, The Williamstown Courier, Williamstown, Ky, May 30,
1901, reprinted September 19, 1981 by the Grant County KY Historical
Society.

H. L. D. BLANCHETT. There are not many families in Grant County who are
of pure French descent, and possibly the most prominent is the subject
of this sketch. In the views of H. L. D. Blanchett there flows only
the purest French blood. He is a son of H. N. D. Blanchett and Miss
Henrietta Roux, and was born in Battle Hill, New Jersey, now called
Madeson, September 26, 1826, and grew to manhood on his father's farm.
His father was a large land owner, and even in that early day was
considered a very rich man. He gave his children every opportunity to
acquire an education. For many years the young man Blanchett studied
under a private tutor at his father's house, and later attended the
Academy and High School of his native town. He paid his first visit to
Kentucky June 3, 1841, and remained here three or four weeks looking
after some lands in the south end of this county in which his father
had acquired an interest by purchasing, with others, all the unsold
lands in the Phillips and Young patent. He arrived in Grant County on
this trip the day that Maythe and Crouch were hung by the Mob, and all
was excitement and turmoil at the time. After a short visit to his
kinsmen, who had already located in this part of the world, he returned
to his father's home in New Jersey. In 1847 he again came to Kentucky,
and was so well pleased with its rolling hills, magnificent forests and
abundant game, that he decided to locate in this state and make his
future home in the wilds of what was then almost an unbroken wilderness.
His brother had already preceded him, and built for himself a home in
the forest. His father deeded him a large tract of land near what is
Blanchett, in this county, and there he located, built his domicile,
and there he has been from that day until now. At that date everything
was in woods between Corinth and Williamstown. The old Dry Ridge state
road itself was but little better than a path, and there were only five
tenements and clearings between Corinth and Williamstown. Yet Grant
County has been established for more than twenty years. Mr. Blanchett
says that on his farm then consisting of about 2,500 acres, there was
the finest body of timber he ever saw grow out of the ground, and the
deer and game of all kinds were so plentiful that it was hardly fun to
hunt them. In fact he is of the opinion that the game--wild turkeys and
deer--was mainly instrumental in getting him to locate in Kentucky, and
especially in the hills of Grant County. He is now, and has been all
of his life, a keen sportsman, a fine shot, and his gun has brought to
the ground the best game of half a dozen states. Before coming to
Kentucky the second time he contracted a marriage with Miss Jane Cooley,
a descendant of Isaac P. Cooley and Elizabeth Brown of Holland Dutch
and English descent. They were married in West Milford, New Jersey.
They had no children, and his wife died August 10, 1899, and lies
buried in the Williamstown Cemetery. Mr. Blanchett and his people are
all Catholics. For many years he was one of the largest land owners in
the county, but in more recent times has disposed of much of his
property, and now is owner of a small farm of a few hundred acres as
compared with many hundred that once belonged to him. He is an elegant
French gentleman of the old school, and expects to spend the remainder
of his days on his farm, living in peace, quiet and plenty.

"William Vardaman was born in 1775 on his grandfather's plantation on the Hunting Fork of the Indian Creek, a tributary of the Enoree River, in the dutch Fork are of the old 96 District ,SC. In 1782 this area became part of the Newberry Co. William was the eldest (changed to youngest, see below 23 Mar 2017) of three sons of James Vardaman, a Revolutionary War Patriot, who was born in Bedford Co. VA, possibly around 1750. James was the 4th son of "old" William Vardaman who has migrated to "up-country" South Carolina in 1766 from his former home in Bedford Co. VA, together with his second wife , Bridgit Tinkler, and their son, James. James would remain in South Carolina for the rest of his life inherting his fathers lands in 1789.

William Vardaman brought his family to the Alabama territory before it became a state, possibly sometime in 1819. He was active in the Bibb Co. militia during the early 1820's and his oldest son Porter Ratcliff Vardaman, married in Bibb Co. in 1829 and can be found there in the 1830 census.

According to family lore of the Thomas Roberson family, ca 1818/1819, the Vardamans and Robersons together with 2 other families, the Tinsleys and Satterwhites, formed a wagon train and traveled from Putnam Co., GA, deep into friendly Cherokee Indian territory, to the head of the Coosa River at the confluence of Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers near where the city of Rome GA, is now located. There they built rafts and floated down the Coosa River to Ft. Williams on the east bank of the river in what is now Talladega Co. Alabama, but was then hostile Creek Indian territory."

23 March 2017: Email from Jack Vardaman with updated Analysis
He explains that he now believes William Vardaman was the youngest son of James Vardaman and his mother was actually Jane Johnson Vardaman rather than Sabra Lyles! Big change!

"Although the complete date of birth (above) for William is, to my knowledge, also unconfirmed, it has the advantage of (1) supporting the order listed in Col. Johnson's bio-sketch for his Aunt Jane Johnson, (2) is a complete date, not just a ca year and (3) agrees with the one census age available for him (1830 Census). In addition it also confirms that he is, without a doubt, the son of James Vardaman's wife Jane Johnson which will no longer be in dispute."

"A U.S. Army enlistment record, currently available at ancestry.com on the internet, does, indeed, confirm that William Vardiman (sic), age 20 (sic) (not likely), was born in Newberry County, South Carolina, and enlisted in the U.S. Army, 3rd of February 1809, in Newberry County, for a period to end 2nd of February 1814 (5 years). Although this record slightly misspells his name (in a manner with which we are familiar) and his age clearly has to be in error, this is, without question, William Vardaman, who can be no other than William, son of James Vardaman of Newberry County, South Carolina.

Note: A caption page for William Vardiman attached to this enlistment record by ancestry.com, states that his birth was in 1789. This date has very obviously been extrapolated from the incorrect age of 20 shown on the enlistment record and, as a result, would also be incorrect.."

""1855 Alabama State Census Record for Tallapoosa County, Alabama

The identification of the Peter Vardaman included in the Augustus Cargile household on the 1850 Butts County, GA, census as the son of Joseph and Rachel Vardaman is confirmed by the presence of three Vardimen (sic) men on an 1855 Alabama State Census Record for Tallapoosa County, AL. On this census the following three individuals are enumerated in sequence, just as I have them listed here::

Vardiman, A. G.
Vardiman, P. K.
Vardiman, P. L.

The third person listed in the above cited 1855 Alabama state census is Peter Lafayette Vardaman, youngest son of Thomas and Annie (Vining) Vardaman, with one white male under age 21, one white male age 21 and over, and one white female age 21 and over, in his household. Peter Lafayette, born 11 Oct. 1830, is now age 24 (having not quite yet reached his 25th birthday) and is the white male over age 21 and head of household. The white female, age of 21 or over, is his wife, Susan Matilda Durham whom he married 14 March 1854 in Harris County, GA, daughter of Silas M. and Alvenia (Booles) Durham. She was born 8 May 1834 in Greene County, GA, and would have become age 21 on that date in 1855. The white male under the age of 21 is their new-born son, Walter Albert Vardaman, born 15 April, 1855 in Tallapoosa County, AL."

Note the oddity in the marriages of the two Vardaman double first cousins:

Albert G. Vardaman, who had been a resident in his parent's household in Harris County, GA, married a woman named Susan in 1854 in Tallapoosa County, Alabama,

At almost the same time, his double first cousin, Peter Lafayette Vardaman, a resident of Tallapoosa County, AL, married a woman named Susan in 1854 in Harris County, GA.

Unbelievable! Thank goodness it was not Albert's brother, Peter, who married Susan Napier in Tallapoosa County in 1854 or we might never have sorted this out correctly.

96 (Research):02 July 2012: Jack Vardaman's research on "Vardamans who served in the confederate army from Alabama"
Confederate Pvt., Co. G (The Hilliby Blues), 14th Alabama, Inf. Regt.

Jack Vardaman Research:

William Sanford Vardaman, who enlisted Sept. 5, 1861, died early in the war, on May 5, 1862, during the Battle of Williamsburg (VA). He was not yet 22 years old at his death.
The younger brother, James Mathis Vardaman, who also enlisted in Capt. Slaughter's Cavalry Company, probably at the same time as his brother, John Forsythe Vardaman, died at the age of 23 while on picket duty during the siege of Petersburg (VA) on March 30, 1865. Sadly, his death came only 10 days before the end of the war. It is presumed that both brothers who died while in service are buried in military cemeteries in the areas of Virginia where they died.

11 June 2015 - Gary Vardeman and Jack Vardaman's son are considering putting Jack's research at Auburn, Alabama where Jack's great grandfather taught at Auburn University and has a Vardeman collection already.

19 Sept 2015 - Spoke with Jack Vardaman at length today. He will try to email me a couple more recent articles. However, he submitted multiple biographical sketches to a book series called "The Heritage of Alabama Series" with each county for the state of Alabama back in 1999. There were 60 of them all together, Jack owns all 18-20 that refer to the Vardemans, upstairs in his office

Coosa County Vol. 19 has the most Vardemans
"The Heritage of Coosa County Alabama" ISBN: 1-891-647-32-6

Jefferson County Vol. 37 also has a lot of Vardemans.

Jack wrote three sketches on John Forsythe Vardaman - Civil War, career as a school teacher, and home life that were published he thinks in the Chamber County book.

Another interesting person is Claude Odias Vardeman from Alabama who was part of the delegation that went to NATO to meet with Eisenhower, who had been a general during WWII and was head of NATO and about to retire and convinced him to run for President for the Republican party. He represented Ike in different events.

He is currently working on a 70 page document on Mary Bruce Vardeman who married Adair who married in the 1840s. They had 12 children. It has not been published yet.
