Descendants of Louise Jeton, from France to America Updated August 8, 2011
About Our Family Research
Shortly I will gather again the images and handwritten family notes of the Jeton, "Jetton" history as handed to me. The Original Louise Jeton arrived at Charleston, where he and his family settled in. Subsequent family added an extra 't'. This may have been a census takers mistake, or it may have served for more proper pronunciation.
The Family of Jeton, of France carried a heavy burden. They were of Gypsy, Noble, and Hugenots. It is grand to bear the name, and heavy to ignore the faint protests from before.
This written memory, while none can protest, is my forbears' bequest. From a rich and noble family, we are descended. What we do and undo from our heritage will forever remain our Legacy.
