Stories about Jules Chebert

Biographical Sketch

    Jules Chebert was born in France in 1820, and resided in Florida since about 1848.

    He enlisted as a coxswain in Captain Henry Mulrennan’s Florida Volunteers Coast Guards on November 27, 1861.  He served with this organization until April 25th, 1862. On that date, he was enlisted in Captain Smith’s Company (Key West Avengers), 7th Florida Infantry Regiment on April 25th, 1862 by  Major R. B. Thomas at Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida for 3 years or the war. He is reported as present on all company rolls until an undated roll for the period April 30th, 1862 to November 14th, 1862.  This roll documents his promotion from 1st Corporal to 2nd Sergeant on April 25th, and his transfer to the C.S. Navy on August 8th, 1862.

    He served in CSS Chattahoochee at Blountstown, Florida until May 27, 1863 when her boiler exploded and she sank.

    He then served in CSS Savannah until June 3rd, 1864 when he was wounded in action (shot through body) in the taking of the USS Water Witch.  He returned to Key West, where he lived with his wife Missouri (maiden name Roberts), and three children (eldest born in 1861), and was employed as a seaman.

    He drew a Confederate Pension (Florida #A12958), and died in Key West in 1873.
