Thomas Lynch, Jr., Signer of the Declaration of Independence, was born on August 5, 1749. While representing South Carolina in the Second Continental Congress, his father, Thomas Lynch Senior suffered a stroke and the SC Legislature elected Thomas Jr. to go to Congress to care for his father and to take over his duties as a delegate. In poor health himself, Thomas Jr. remained just long enough in Philadelphia to vote for independence and to sign the Declaration of Independence.
Benjamin Harrison V (April 5, 1726 – April 24, 1791) was an American planter and revolutionary leader from Charles City County, Virginia. Harrison was a representative for Surry County, Virginia (1756-1758) and Charles City County (1766-1776) to the House of Burgesses. He was a Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress from 1774 to 1777 and, during the Second Continental Congress, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
