      The first records of HUGH and JEREMIAH were found in Fincastle County, VA. They were given land grants by the Loyal Land Company in January 1775. This land was on the New River and later became part of Montgomery County, VA. HUGH and JEREMIAH owned adjoining land. Both of them lived in Montgomery County until after the Revolution. In the spring of 1789, they sold their holdings in Montgomery County BA. No land records for JAMES found in Montgomery County, VA, however he was in service during most of this period. He was in the Army several times but records show that each time he was discharged he returned to an area where HUGH and Jeremiah RESIDES. All three of the brothers were in North Carolina when the 1790 census was taken. They apparently did not remain there very long because HUGH was in Lee County, VA by 1795 and JEREMIAH was in Russell County, VA. These were adjoining counties. At that time both of these counties adjoined Kentucky. On October 20, 1798 EDWARD and ELIZABETH YOUNG sold 96 acres of land to JEREMIAH PATRICK, SR. in Russell County, VA. On March 6, 1798, HUGH PATRICK purchased 200 acres of land from FREDERICK JONES in Lee County, VA. However both had patents to land in those counties acquired by at least 1795.

      Jeremiah Patrick was born 1738. He married Sarah "Sallieā€ 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".

      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.
