Jeremiah was not the name of the father of Jacob Cleveland of Elbert County, Georgia. Jeremiah was the name of Jacob’s wife father. Extensive research has not revealed a Jeremiah Cleveland born or living in the Colonies any earlier than 1747. There is however a John Cleveland who is most probably the father of Jacob.
“1767 Tithables, Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Taken by Captain John Ward.
Thomas Hardy, Peter Lee. Negroes; Harry, Jack, Abram, Bess, Tom, Ben, Nant, Jack, Dick, Matt, Tom, John, Thomas, Nant.”
Jacob Cleveland had sons who went to Pittsylvania County, and Millie’s brothers were there Jacob also had land deals with a Thomas Hardy.
There is still a John Cleveland listed in the 1790 Pittsylvania County, Virginia census with three others in his household. This is in my opinion the same John Cleveland.
The info in the 1899 Cleveland Genealogies, where this connection is published, is incorrect and not documented.
