JOHN PAUL "QUINCY" JONES - We took John to see the tomb of John Paul Jones and asked if he knew who John Paul Jones was. John said jokingly "I don't know John Paul Quincy Jones" (Quincy Jones is a record producer) - so he found out when we went into his marble tomb that he was was a Scottish sailor and the United States' first well-known naval fighter in the American Revolution. Although he made enemies among America's political elites, his actions in British waters during the Revolution earned him an international reputation which persists to this day. As such he is sometimes referred to as the "Father of the United States Navy" (July 6, 1747 – July 18, 1792).
