     Text from SAR Application #51749 (written in 1935):
     "Capt. John Jouett - Known as Jack Jouett
     "In June 1781, Colonel Tarlton of the British Army was given command by General Cornwallis of 180 Dragoons and 70 mounted infantry and ordered to make a surprise march to Charlottesville, Va. Where the Virginia Legislature was in session, following their flight from Richmond. The object was to capture Governor Thomas Jefferson and the Legislature amongst whom were Patrick Henry, Richard Henry Lee, Benjamin Harrison, ancestor of two presidents, and Thomas Nelson, Jr; the three latter were signers of the Declaration of Independence.
     "Tarlton was making a forced march and stopped at Cuckoo Tavern (now a National Shrine in memory its part in this event) which is about forty miles from Charlottesville. Capt. Jack Jouett happened to be in the neighborhood when they arrived. In some unknown way (probably from a drinking British soldier) he learned of the intention of the British. Fortunately he knew the lay of the land in that district and as the British were on the main highway, he jumped on his horse and made a cross-country ride. According to records the moon was about full at the time for without moonlight his feat could have been impossible. He carried the scars caused by the cuts on his face from the hanging boughs and branches to his grave. The fact that the British sopped at the home of Dr. Thomas Walker to refresh themselves and their horses, enable him to beat them to Charlottesville by a sufficient margin to enable him to accomplish his intentions. His first stop was at Monticello where he notified Governor Jefferson. He then continued the two miles to Charlottesville where he gave the alarm to the Legislators. All the records and stores were saved, but it was such a close shave that seven of the legislators were captured. He moved to Kentucky shortly after the Revolutionary War.
     "The following is a copy of a joint resolution approved by both houses of the Virginia Legislature on June 12th. 1781.
     "'Resolved that the Executive be desired to present to Capt. John Jouett an elegant sword and a pair of pistols as a memorial of the high sense which the General Assemblies entertain of his activity and enterprise of watching the motions of the enemy's cavalry on their late incursion to Charlottesville and conveying to the Assembly timely information of their approach, whereby the designs of the enemy were frustrated and many valuable stores preserved.' The pistols were presented to Jouett in 1783 and the sword in 1803.
     "June4th has been known as Jack Jouett Day in Virginia for many years and a movement is now on foot towards having it so proclaimed in Kentucky. A good many newspaper and magazine articles have been written about the 'Jack Jouett Ride' and within comparatively recent years it has been described in school histories."
Commemorative historical panels seen on Find A Grave.3,8 He was mentioned with Capt. John Jouett Sr.      Per Miller [1907:274]: "...was a signer of the Albemarle Declaration of Independence April 21, 1779, as was his son John." on 21 July 1779.1

Capt. John "Jack" Jouett Jr. lived between 1784 and 1785 at Kentucky, USA;      Per Miller [1907:274]: "They emigrated from Albemarle to Ky. and settled in Mercer or Woodford in 1784-5."1 He was      Per Miller [1907:274]: "...represented Mercer in the Ky. Legislature in 1792..." in 1792 at Mercer Co., Kentucky, USA.1 He was      Per Miller [1907:274]: "...represented Mercer Woodford in 1795-7." between 1795 and 1797 at Woodford Co., Kentucky, USA.1

Anderson (Cincinnati, OH: Author, 1938), p. 22.7,5 He married Unknown (?) before 1713;

His 2nd wife. Miller [1907:301] says m. Aptil 1721: "Sarah Jennings, be came acquainted with Mrs. Cornelius Dabney, whilst they lived in England, and was her warm personal friend. Mrs. Dabney was an invalied, and Sarah Jennings remained with ehr, and when the Dabney family emigreated to America, Sarah Jennings came with them, and settled in Hanover ounty, and in April 1721, she became the second wife of the said Cornelius Dabney, senior...Mrs .

Early in the Eighteenth Century, when well advanced in years, these brothers, (John and cornelius then having grown children) left France or England and emigrated to america, with their weves and children. George Dabney settled in Massachusetts, and John Dabney and cornlius Dabney settled near Piping Tree Ferry on Work River in Hanover County, Va. Cornelius had son, George Dabney, who came with them to America. The Dabneys were French Huguenots and to escape persecution came to America."3
