John Paul Jones (July 6, 1747 - July 18, 1792) is most famous for what he said while in service of the Continental Navy when, in British waters during the Revolutionary War, he said, "I have not yet begun to fight!" He changed his name from John Paul, adding the "Jones" being accused of two separate murders of crewmen. In 1768, he was aboard a ship when the captain and the ranking mate died of yellow fever, leaving him to steer the ship to safety.
