The problem with the Volunteer Legion address is that it comes too late in the game for Ruebin or Valintine Pieratt. Most sources place the Valintine we are looking at on U.S. soil as early as 1776 to 1779.

This orgainization list is posted at Yorktown Battlefield where I personnally spoke with the park ranger who was a very informative. She stated that the first group that came over with Lafayette were volunteers and he dispersed his troops to the state militias where they could be paid and fed.

I went back to Chesterfield Virginia library and found on Ruebin Pieratt in the North Carolina militia.

I still need hard copy on any information placing Valintine Pieratt in a unit that fought in the Revolution, moved on after Yorktown, made his way to Baltimore to find a wife and then moved on to Kentucky and raised his family.

His offspring also married into the Murphy family that hosts Sarah Boone the older sister of Daniel Boone and the Wells family.
