Colonials at Bonaventure Marker  



Text:

Georgia was the last of the 13 colonies settled in 1733. It was a time of trial and hardship and called for persons bold in spirit, as well as resilience to the hard life that came with pioneering. In this section we honor 13 of those men and woman, most whose remains were removed from earlier burial places and have been placed in in this hallowed ground at Bonaventure. We salute them, as well as their fellow colonists for their contributions in settling the colony of Georgia. All were important to the founding of this great state.
