55 (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.

57 (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).

62 Marriage, Rev. Andrew Hesselius was married at Old Swedes Church on May, 1713, the same day that he took the regular pastorate from his predecessor, Eric Bjork, the first pastor. His last service was on September 15, 1723 when he handed it over to his brother, Samuel Hesselius, whose farewell sermon was preached on Oct. 10, 1731. The Vardeman family were married, took communion, and baptized their children in this church under the ministry of Rev. Andrew and Rev. Samuel Hesselius. Source (S19)
63 Son-in-law's obituary Bouthenot, Clementine Frederique (I5387)
64 We do not know with confidence the origin of the Vardeman surname, nor the church affiliation of John Vardeman I and his wife. We do know based upon church records that his son William Vardeman I and his daughter Jane (Joanna) Margarita do become members of the Old Swedes Church by marrying spouses whose families are existing members. Therefore the second census may not record the presence of the John Vardeman's (John Vardeman I) family merely because of the lack of membership status with the Swedish Church. Source (S20)
