About Jeremiah Patrick, Sr.

DAR Ancestor #: A088680

Jeremiah Patrick was born 1738. He married Sarah "Sallie" Blair Harrisonburg, Rock Co., VA, ABT 1790. "Jeremiah, according to William Patrick II's manuscript was married in Maryland to Sallie. He moved to Gile Co. VA in 1810 and to Floyd County, KY in 1822. The document says that Jeremiah is buried near Reuben Arnett's on the Middle Fork of LIcking River, KY"

While he served in the Revolutionary War he was taken prisoner. He was charged with being an enemy to this country and acting under the commission of the King of Great Britian. Witness were brought forth and he was found innocent, but bound to his good behavior for 12 months and fines a sum of 1000 pounds.

He was given a land grant on the New River in what later became Montgomery County, Virginia (brother HUGH lived on adjoining land); moved to Kentucky around 1813 at age 75, following in the footsteps of his brother James, who had scouted in eastern Kentucky while serving with General George Rogers Clark, and had moved there in 1808. They moved their bare necessities on jolt wagons and horses, as the trail into Kentucky was difficult and nearly impassable. It is believed that Sarah died shortly before the move, as records show that Jeremiah alone sold land in Virginia about that time. They had 14 children; William, Jeremiah Jr., John, Brice, Thomas, Elias, Maston, Polly, Gerusia, Ruth, Sarah, Louisa, Nancy, and Margaret.

His grandson Reuben built a cabin for him on his farm on the Middle Fork of the Licking River. Jeremiah went hunting on the last day of his life and collapsed of an acute gastro-intestinal illness. He signaled his grandson, Reuben, by firing three shots from his gun. He died that day in 1822 at age 84. Jeremiah is buried alone in the Dyer cemetery, Middle Fork near Salyersville, Kentucky. A Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) marker was added to his grave in 1947.
