Edward Telfair Articles of Confederation

List of Colonials at Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, Ga

Colonials at Bonaventure

Edward Telfair was a Georgia Delegate to the Continental Congress and signer of the Articles of Confederation.

Edward Telfair (1735-1807)

I was surprised to see that the only history mentioned about Edward was his role as Governor of Georgia, and a brief mention of his jaunts as one of the “Liberty Boys,” (Sons of Liberty), 1774.

There is nary a mention that he served multiple times as the Georgia Delegate to the US Constitutional Conventions, one of those times he signed the Articles of Confederation, the interim government between the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.

Here is a brief video of our visit to the burial site of Edward Telfair, (and family).

Please note I had been soaked with rain a few times and trying to find comfort from the pre-tropical hurricane weather.  Hence the bad hair and wet clothes.
