From June Bork:
"On December 26, 1776, Jeremiah (II) and his brother John enlisted from Amherst County, Virginia to serve a six month tour in the Revolutionary War. He was shown as a private in the 10th Virginia Regulars of Foot Soldiers under Capt. James Franklin. The Company Muster Roll of 31 May 1777 shows that he and his brother John had deserted the army two months earlier on March 15, 1777."
(From Lenora Higginbotham Sweeny, "Amherst County, Virginia in Revolutionary War."

Jeremiah II was in Pittsylvania Co, VA on 10 Oct 1777 where he signed the Oath of Allegiance to the United States. In 1776/7, Henry Co was formed out of Pittsylvania Co. Tax records reveal he was then in Henry Co in 1779.

In March 1781, he was listed as a soldier who left from Henry County as a militia-man who marched to the assistance of General Green at Guilford Court House Battle, fought March 11, 1781.

The same year, Jeremiah filed a public service claim for furnishing 39 pounds of bacon and supplies of food to the Henry County Court House where the Hospital was set up for the wounded soldiers. He is called a Patriot and descendants are eligible to join Daughters/Sons of the American Revolution.

1791 Patrick Co, VA - Permit granted Jeremiah Burnett (II) for the operation of an Ordinary (Deed Book I, page 83). [An ordinary was a tavern; he was a Scotsman and made brew].
