My Jouett heritage


jouett ride markerJack Jouett is my whatevereth-cousin – and is sometimes referred to as The Paul Revere of Virginia.

A son was Matthew Harris Jouett, a famous painter whose portraits are highly prized.

A grandson was James Edward Jouett, an officer in the United States Navy.  Three ships in the United States Navy have been named the USS Jouett.

Alas – doubt there is any connection with the Perrier Jouet champagne . . .
