Hall, Lyman 1725-1790

Signer of the Declaration of Independence; born in Connecticut in 1725; graduated at Yale College in 1747, and, becoming a physician, established himself at Sunbury, Ga., where he was very successful. He was a member of the Georgia convention in 1774-75, and was influential in causing Georgia to join the other colonies. He was a delegate to Congress in March, 1775, from the parish of St. John, and in July was elected a delegate by the provincial convention of Georgia. He remained in Congress until 1780, when the invasion of the State caused him to hasten home. He was governor of Georgia in 1783, and died in Burke county, Ga., Oct. 19, 1790.
