Jeremiah was a prominent surveyor in the early formation of the area, to which land records attest; also, he was a Free Will Baptist (FWB) minister. He organized the Core Creek FWB Church, and also pastored the FWB church at New Bern, NC, and probably others.

Rev. Jeremiah HEATH's name is found among historical records with early FWB minister's names who contended for, and remained influential in sustaining the Orig. Free Will Baptist church in its early formation and growth, especially the old Bethel Conference, when it could have been merged.
He raised several children who became worthy citizens. Rev. Jesse Heath's name is known as a prominent leader in the area.
