Zubly, John Joachim, Dd (2)
Zubly, John Joachim, D.D.
a Presbyterian minister, was born about the year 1730. In 1775 he took an active part in political matters, and was selected as one of the Georgia delegates to the Continental Congress at Philadelphia. The Georgia divine did not prove loyal to the Whig side, and a correspondence of his with the royal governor of the state having been discovered, he was compelled to resign his position in Congress, and subsequently his property was forfeited under the Confiscation Act. He died at Savannah, before the war ended, in July 1781. He is said to have been "a man of great learning, of vigorous and penetrating mind." See Sabine, Royalists in the Rev. War, 2:467. (J.C.S.)
