On the back of this locket are inscribed the words: “Peter De Vaux---Ancestor of Theodore Roosevelt.” The president’s forebears included James De Veaux (1710-1785) and Andre De Veaux (died1754), and this gentleman may have been a relation of theirs. In this miniature he is shown wearing a high neckband with a frilly extension known as a jabot.
