George Clymer and his Quaker Connection


George Clymer, signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, is buried in our Meeting’s yard.  As told to me, the Meeting’s handed-down verbal story states that he was not a Quaker, but was visiting his son in Trenton in the winter when he died.  Although he lived in Morrisville, he had to be buried in Trenton because the Delaware River could be crossed then only by ferry.  This story is in error.
