Philadelphia, PA–Lyman Hall

Georgia governor and signer of the Declaration of Independence.

Lyman Hall’s epitaph reads as follows:

“Beneath this stone rest the remains of the Hon. Lyman Hall, Formerly Governor of this State, who departed this life the 19th of Oct., 1790, in the 67th year of his age.”
”In the cause of America he was uniformly a patriot. In the incumbent duties of a husband and a father he acquitted himself with affection and tenderness. But, reader, above all, know from this inscription that he left the probationary scene as a true Christian and an honest man.”
