Jeremiah's father is thought to be John Pleasant Worsham, but this is unproven. The conclusion is based on the fact that John Pleasant Worsham and his brother Jeremiah Worsham, Jr. (b. 1762) are living together in Alabama and our Jeremiah does not match any of John's brother Jeremiah's children.

A Worsham Bible transcription states Jeremiah's date of birth as 10 Oct 1788 rather than 13 Oct.

Jeremiah served as a private in the Captain James Wyatt Company, 1st Regiment Mounted Gunmen (Dyer's), Tennessee Volunteers during the War of 1812.

Jeremiah married first Catherine Landrum on 05 Feb 1815. They were likely married in Washington County, Alabama. This is based on the birth locations of their children and the generally believed location for them and related family members at the time. Jeremiah and Catherine had 5 children.

Jeremiah and his family immigrated from Alabama to the Mexican province of Texas in 1835. He was present in Texas during the entire period of the Republic of Texas. They followed in the footsteps of Zachariah Landrum, Catherine's father, who had previously come to Montgomery County, Texas.

Jeremiah married second Rebecca E. Bay on 22 Jun 1853 in Montgomery County, Texas and moved to the area of the Grimes-Montgomery county line.

His estate is in probate between 25 Apr 1863 and Apr 1866 in Grimes County, Texas.
