      ************************************************************************** *****

      After Jeremiah (Sr.) died, it appears that several of his children, & their spouses, began their trek to GA, spending a few years in Pittsylvania Co., VA on the way.

           John White, John Shackelford, Jacob Cleveland, John Martin, Joseph Ballenger, Jno. Waller, all swore to the Oath of Allegiance, 1777, Pittsylvania Co., Va.
           (Chiarita, M. D. "Oaths of Allegiance - 1777,
           Pittsylvania County, Virginia."  Feb. 1985, "Magazine of Virginia Genealogy," Vol. 23, No. 1, p. 3.)

      They more than likely traveled to GA in the group headed up by Gen. Matthews.

      From "The Official History of Elbert Co. (GA), 1790-1935" by John H. McIntosh, Cherokee Publishing Co., Atlanta, GA, 1983, Chapter IV, p. 33:

           "In the year 1784, General George Matthews, who later  became Governor, brought a large number of Virginians and North Carolinians to the Broad and Savannah River country and they established themselves in the  territory around the site of what was soon to become the thriving and commercially important town of  Petersburg."
