Thomas Jefferson's mark is, of course, all over Washington. His love for classical architecture influenced the building of the Nation's Capital. The design of Pennsylvania Avenue owes much to him, and it was his suggestion that the White House be put in a parklike setting. In Charlottesville, the University of Virginia was built to his design.
Carter Braxton lived with his first wife in Elsing Green on the Pamunkey River in King William County (northeast of Richmond). It is now a private house. Chericoke, the house he lived in with his second wife and 16 children, also in King William County, burned to the ground in 1776.
Francis Lightfoot Lee and his wife retired to a small house near Warsaw, Va., where both died within a few days of each other in the hard winter of 1797. The house is privately owned and is not visible from the road.
The three signers of the Declaration of Independence, in addition to Braxton, whose burial sites are unknown, are Thomas Lynch of South Carolina, lost at sea; Lyman Hall of Georgia, whose grave at the monument to the signers in Augusta, Ga., is sometimes disputed; and Button Guinnett of Georgia, who may be in Sunbury, Ga., or in Colonial Park Cemetery in Savannah.
