Much of what is known about Jeremiah has been discussed in the context of his father Anthony's will (see Note 2B). According to Dellinger, again drawing on the work of Dorotha Riddle Marsh, Jeremiah moved to what became Chatham County, NC, and purchased 500 acres from William Riddle in 1769 and sold it three years later to his uncle, John Oliver Minter. He served in the Chatham militia, in Capt. Joab Brooks' Company. As previously noted, he was declared insane by a court of Chatham County in 1791, was sued for debt, fraud, and insanity, and declared insane again in 1804. He never married, and it is unknown whether he ever appeared to claim his legacy from his father's will.
