He was married to Evelyn Knowles and, like her, was one of the 212 re-educated Adams and Eves which Pei Shan-wei put in place in enclaves all over Safehold. Thanks to Dr. Pei, Jeremiah, Evelyn, her brother, Kayleb Sarmac, and sister-in-law, Jennifer Sarmac, were listed as living in the Alexandria Enclave in the official Operation Ark personnel roster, while they actually lived in the Tellesberg Enclave.
In Tellesberg, they survived the purging of the "techies" and Jeremiah became known as Saint Zherneau, writing several documents, including a journal and a letter about his life that the brethren bearing his name kept hidden for centuries. He and his wife had them sealed, with solemn directions for the Brethren to leave them that way for 350 years after their deaths. (BSRA)
