William Vining
and
Anna Nichols



The following outline is an attempt to consolidate the information--most of which is transcribed after the outline--I inherited from Uncle James Basset Gwin. Some of it--certainly the earliest generations--comes from  Ms. Nancy Perryman Waters (see this source below); other comes from my cousin Liz Harris.

pp.30A and 30BXX Vardaman Family History Supplement Compiled by Uncle James B. Gwin

The following is taken from a letter written to my mother from a Leon A. Nolen dated October 11, 1944 address 1609 12th St., B'ham, AL

He states that there were three Vardaman brothers who married three Vining sisters. This agrees with other records that we have.   However, the names of the Vardaman brothers differ from our records. He states that the brothers were named Thomas, Joseph, and William.

Our records show that they were Peter, James, and William. Thomas Vardaman who married Annie Vining was the son of James. However, our record does not show who the original three Vardaman brothers married, and it could be that they married the three sisters before Thomas their son married Annie. This letter states that the three sisters were named Annie, Rachal (sic), and Ruth; another sister to the above was Zilpha Vining who married Joseph Tomme around 1800 in Jefferson Co., GA, a second marriage in 1840 to Anthony Holloway in Troup County, GA. (note that a daughter of Edwy Vardaman, son of Thomas Vardaman, had a daughter named "Zylpha Thommie Hollaway Vardaman, evidently named for this Zilpha Vining.)



             Let me quote here a page from Uncle James B. Gwin's notes, as some if it near the end may be useful to you--I don't know.
             Here's what I have:

             Pages 31A and 32A: Vardaman Family History
             Compiled by James B. Gwin

The following is a copy of a letter written to my mother [JOHN GWIN note: Mrs. Adrian Bell Vardaman Gwin, my grandmother] by Leon A. Nolen of 1609 12th St., Birmingham, AL, on 29 Sep 1944.

"Dear distant cousins;
             "As you know, I have been interested in my family line in order to know from whence they came and what contributions they made in the times in which they lived. We have the Vining line in common.
             "About three or four years ago, I visited for a short while with Miss Annie Vardaman and her father, John T. Vardaman in Sylacauga, Alabama.  At that time I knew very little of the Vining Family; since, however, I have found records which show our relationship. At that time Mr. John T. Vardaman told me that Mr. John Forsythe Vardaman [JOHN GWIN note: my great-grandfather], father of Mrs. Gwin and Mrs. Webb, along about 1870 or 1880 wrote down in a book--a buckskin or calfskin back, I remember he said--a history of the different family connections--the Vardamans and Vinings, etc.    Cousin Maggie [JOHN GWIN note: the aforementioned Mrs. Webb] tells me that there was such a book her father had, but she is unable to locate it. If that book could be found, it certainly would throw a lot of light on things that may be now forever lost. I should like very much to see it in reference to the Vining family. If possible it would be found, we are beginning to think more of our lineage now than formerly."

(Note: this book has never turned up and is evidently lost forever--James B. Gwin)

INFORMATION FURNISHED BY LEON A. NOLEN:

VINING:

The Vinings settled sometime around 1650 at Weymouth, MA. Some of the family moved to Johnston Co., NC, sometime around 1750; one of them, Jeptha Vining, was a noted Baptist preacher in SC and GA.

JOHN VINING: Born probably about 1720 probably in MA, died in 1801 in Jefferson Co., GA, date of marriage and name of wife unknown. His will was probated in Jefferson Co. in 1801. He had moved from Johnston Co., NC, in 1788; children mentioned in his will: SARAH: CADAR: WILLIAM: SHADRACH [JOHN GWIN note: this is our line]: JOHN: JESSE: (THOMAS?): ANN: ABBEGILL (sic).

SHADRACH VINING: m. 1778 in Johnston Co., NC, to Phereby Ratcliffe. He moved with his father 1788 from Johnston Co., NC, to what is now Jefferson Co., GA. His will probated Jan. 1806 in Jeffereson Co., GA, naming his wife Phereby and a son John Vining "my estate be equally divided among all my children." (No mention here of how many children.) His widow, Phereby Vining, moved about 1806 or 1807 to what is now Putnam Co., GA; she died in 1826 and her surviving 13 children signed a deed selling her land as follows:

Rachel Vining m. Joseph Vardaman  lived in Harries Co., GA.
Simeon Vining
Reubin Vining
Jefferson Vining
Annie Vining m. Thomas Vardaman
Benjamin Vardaman Vining
Shadrach Vining
Ruth Vining m. William Vardaman

Samuel Vining
Phereby Vining
Zilpha Vining m. 1800 to Joseph Tomme, g.parents of Adolphus Ving Tomme who was gpa of Leon A. Nolen.

A tradition in the family that two of the Vining girls who married Vardaman boys were twins. This is believed to be Ruth and Rachel who married Joseph and William Vardaman.

pp.30A and 30BXX Vardaman Family History Supplement Compiled by Uncle James B. Gwin

The following is taken from a letter written to my mother from a Leon A. Nolen dated October 11, 1944 address 1609 12th St., B'ham, AL

He states that there were three Vardaman brothers who married three Vining sisters. This agrees with other records that we have.   However, the names of the Vardaman brothers differ from our records. He states that the brothers were named Thomas, Joseph, and William.

Our records show that they were Peter, James, and William. Thomas Vardaman who married Annie Vining was the son of James. However, our record does not show who the original three Vardaman brothers married, and it could be that they married the three sisters before Thomas their son married Annie. This letter states that the three sisters were named Annie, Rachal (sic), and Ruth; another sister to the above was Zilpha Vining who married Joseph Tomme around 1800 in Jefferson Co., GA, a second marriage in 1840 to Anthony Holloway in Troup County, GA. (note that a daughter of Edwy Vardaman, son of Thomas Vardaman, had a daughter named "Zylpha Thommie Hollaway Vardaman, evidently named for this Zilpha Vining.)

Also some names are given which are not found in the other records that I have. Children of Thomas Vardaman and Annie Vining:

Edwy L. Vardaman b. in Newberry District, SC, 1804;
Jane E. Vardaman, b. 22 Mar 1821;
Thomas Jefferson Vardaman, b. 4 Apr 1828;
Peter Lafayette Vardaman, b. 11 Feb. 1830; and
Ruth.

This letter states that evidently there were a number of other children as the records are missing from the time of their marriage until 1821. He states that Ruth was old enough to join the Crooked Creek Church in Putnam Co., GA, indicating that Ruth was born early in the marriage. This letter states that Annie Vining Vardaman is buried in an unmarked grave near Sylacauga AL, in Mount Olive Cem. A brother of Annie Vining, Jehu, who was born in 1790, is buried in the old Acker Cem. in Bibb Co. (it doesn't say if this is GA or AL.).

The name of a Mr. Greer is given as a descendent of a Rev. Jeptha Vining.

I have the name of a Mrs. Gladys J. Busby, (Mrs. Gearge M. Busby) of Rt. 1 Box 160, Chandler, Arizona, dated 1955, as being a relative of the marriage of Annie Vining and Thomas Vardaman, who has collected some genealogy on this family.

The following names are found in Coosa County Cemeteries Records, a copy of which is to be found in the Archives of Auburn University, and are believed to related to the Family of John Forsythe Vardaman. Information taken from cemetery headstones and from Vol. #1 pages 150, 151, and 131:

Allie Eugene Vardaman, Born Jan 28, 1894, died Nov. 9, 1896, Son of JT and AT buried in Macedonia Baptist Cemetery, located in Sewartsville Community, about two miles off US Hwy 231 in northern part of Coosa Co., AL.

Alexander L. Vardaman, b. 10 Nov. 1876, d. 7 Dec. 1876, bd. in Mount Olive Bapt. Cem. (MOBC is located about 3 miles northwest of Hanover on Co. Rd. 49, Coosa Co., AL.)

Cleveland County Herald, 25 Feb 1915

S. M. HARRIS
S.M. Harris, one of the oldest men in the community, died here the 13th of February and was buried at Camp Springs church on the 14th. He was born in Atlanta, GA, in 1854, moved to Cleveland Co. in 1862, and spent his life near here. He was married 8 Dec 1875 to Mary V. Varnell and joined the Methodist church in 1878.  Many testify to the fact that he was a Christian gentleman and that he died in the Father.
He left Mrs. Mary V. Harris, his widow, and the following children to mourn his loss: Mrs. Ara Reed of Rison, Mrs. Francis Golden, William, Carl and Floyd Harris all of Kingsland, and Alice Allen of Bleeker and Robert Harris of Manning.
Bro. Harris joined the Freewill Baptist Church in 1894. He was a kind father, loving husband, friend, neighbor, citizen and a Christian. May his friends and loved ones attain to a home in the mansion of God.

"One by one our friends are called from earth by life,
And they journey by our side no more.
One by one they cross the solemn river,
Going over on the other shore.
One by one familiar tones grow silent,
One by one dear forms are hid from sight,
But as far, beyond the chilling shadows,
Those we cherished dwell in Heaven's light.
One by one sweet voices swell the anthem,
Ringing thru the city built on high,
One by one glad souls gain life eternal
In that home where none shall ever die.     --CABE

According to Clarence E. Ratcliff--John and Ann Farmer Ratcliff had a daughter named Sarah. In his earlier works, there was a question as to this Sarah being married to John Vining.   In Clarence's 1066-1988 book, John and Ann's daughter, Sarah, was born 29 Aug 1749, Johnston Co., NC. Disowned by Cane Creek MM 2 Feb 1799, for marrying out of unity. Mentioned in her father's will of 1790. Sarah died 16 May 1828, buried Greensboro, NC. No mention of whom she married.
