Button Gwinnett has been called the "Man of.
Mystery." It seems to fit He shot up Into prominence like a meteor and fell like one. And outside of those two years of prominence little is
known of him.
He was an Englishman and was born about 1732,
possibly at Bristol. As to circumstance of birth,
family, schooling and business nothing definite
is known. Was his'1 christian name "Button" or
was Button a corruption of Burton or Bouton. The
name of Gwinnett Is rare in England today. Ho
is believed to have been married, but no one
knows when or whom he married. "We know of
none among the living In this state," writes a
Georgia historian, "in whose veins courses a drop

He arrived about 1802 at Charlestown, S. C.
What he did there is not known. About 17C5 he
engaged In general trading at Savannah, Ga.
About 1770 he bought the Island of St. Catherine
from Rev. Thomas Bosdmworth nnd his Indian
wife. The price is said to have been 5,250 English
pounds. Thereupon he took up the life of a
Is there an authentic portrait of Gwinnett in
existence? Only one seems tohave any sort of
claim to being genuine. This fs or was in the
possession of Hampton L. 'Carson of Philadelphia.
It has this merit: It shows a face which corresponds fairly well with Gwinnett's known characteristics.
Where lies the body of Gwinnett? This seems an
open question. His burial may have taken place
in the old Colonial cemetery nt Savannah. Or
his remains may He on the Island of St Catherine. Gwinnett's name Is on the monument erected
in Augusta In 18SC with those of Lyman Hall and

The coveted epaulets fell to Lachlan Mcintosh.
St Andrew's Parish was full of Mclntoshes,
who had come over from Scotland In one of Oglethorpe's companies. Lachlan Mcintosh and Gwinnett were wont to clash in the Council of Safety.
Gwinnett's election a President of the Council
gave him opportunity to

get after the Mclntoshes. He accused George
(a broth5r of Lachlan) of disloyalty, impounded his estate and sent him under guard to
congress at Philadelphia where he was cleared
after Gwinnett's death.
Gwinnett seut an expedition against East Florida and gave the command to a subordinate of

Have you ever heard of Button Gwinnett? No!
Well, you need not feel lonesome.
Who was he?
Well, he was one of the three delegates from the
Colony of Georgia to the Second Continental Congress In Philadelphia In 1770 and as such delegate affixed his signature to the Declaration of
There Is nothing sentimental about this
price. It is strictly in accord with the
universal law of supply and demand which obtains in autographs Just as it does in pork or
potatoes. There are" only twenty-od- d
known signatures of Gwinnett in existence. There are probably ten times that number of rich men in the
country who want his signature.
This demand comes especially from men who
are ambitious to own a complete set of the signatures of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. A census made last year by Charles
F. Jenkins of Philadelphia showed twenty-seve- n
of these complete sets, seventeen of which are
permanently in public institutions and ten id
Most of the Gwinnett autographs In these sets
are either documents signed, or cut signatures.
The J. Pierpont Morgan collection No. 14, has the
draft of a will In Gwinnett's handwriting. The
Henry E. Huntington set No. 1G has a letter
signed, dated March 21, 1777, less, than two months
before his tragic death. The Louis Bamberger set
No. 24 has a note written by Gwinnett in the third
person, beginning as follows: "Mrs. Gwinnett's
compliments to Mr. and Mrs. Sheftel, hopes Mrs.
Sheftel is recovered," and so on. Mr. Jenkins,
owner of set No. 20, paid $14,000 in 1924 for Gwinnett's signature on an Indenture of a mortgage
