    Biography - American Revolution Veteran
    Peter Vardeman by Jesse H. 'Jack' Vardaman, Jr.  January 25, 2000
(Revised May 6, 2011)
    Peter Vardeman by Jesse H. "Jack" Vardaman, Jr. January 25, 2000 (Revised May 6, 2011)
    "I am attaching a 14 page document that I prepared about Peter Vardeman for your Uncle David back in 2000 which was updated just last year (2011). This document contains the information proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is impossible for Peter Vardeman with wife Prudence to be a son of John (II) and Elizabeth (Morgan) Vardaman and, instead is John (II) Vardeman's brother, the third son of William and Magdalena (Peterson) Vardaman."

    Page 17 - Peter Vardeman Sr. in 1767 in Bedford County, VA deeded 255 acres to Thomas Snow

    According to Jack Vardaman,
    "This entry is very important as Peter's wife, Prudence, is specified as releasing
    her dower rights to this property. This establishes that Peter Vardeman, son of
    William, has a wife named Prudence at this time (1767). This is a very
    important piece of evidence to support the identification of the Peter Vardeman
    in Kentucky who had a wife Prudence and who left a will in Shelby Co., KY, in
    1808, as the same Peter Vardeman, son of William, who was in Bedford
    County, VA, in 1767."

    1782-1788 Kentucky Petitions of the early inhabitants of Kentucky to the General Assembly of Virginia: 1769-1792
    Peter Vardeman signed 3 petitions between 1782-1788 when Kentucky was still part of Virginia. He asked for better government or for Kentucky to be given its independence from Virginia, for Bourbon County to be split based on the terrain so those north of Licking Creek wouldn't have to pass a dangerous area infested by savages on their way to the court house, and for a tobacco inspection building to be built on the land of one of the residents closer to their homes.
