About Jeremiah Allen Early, Sr

A Patriot of the American Revolution for VIRGINIA. DAR Ancestor # A035506

THE FAMILY OF JEREMIAH EARLY, SR., OF CULPEPER COUNTY, VA., embraces the descendants of his nine children, some of whom settled in southern and south-western states, but many remained in Virginia, particularly those of the eldest branches. All of Jeremiah's children left large families, which it has been necessary to trace through journeyings and intermarriages during the settlement in America of two and a half centuries. Knowledge of those who have taken root in Virginia has involved considerable investigation and delay; the attainment of accurate data concerning those who drifted into the states of Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee and the later generations in Missouri, Mississippi and Alabama and Texas, has been more tedious and often discouraging. Little wonder if inaccuracies may be discovered in a family history calling for especial vigilance against delusive tradition and uncertain memories; but while members of the various branches have contributed items concerning their particular connection ( which have been used in the following pages) the main features of this genealogical register have been copied from authentic records.
