Bio by: Garver Graver



Inscription

Here repose
the mortal remains of
PATRICK NOBLE
who died at Abbeville Court House
the 7th day of April 1840 in the 53rd year of this age.
He was a native of Abbeville District, which he
represented successively in the Senate and House
pf Representatives of South Carolina during a long
course of years, and was finally elected Governor,
which office he held at the time of his death. As a public
man he was distinguished by moderation, resulting
from a mild and even temperament, and by firmness
of purpose, proceeding from a high sense of duty
and a sound judgement, drawing its conclusions
from careful and dispassionate examination.
In all the relations of private life he was singularly
exemplary, and in public and private such was the
unblemished purity of his character that both friends
and opponents would concur in inscribing on his tomb:
"Here lie the bones of an honest man."
The example of his virtues, silently impressed upon
the community in which he lived, contributed largely
to the formation of the high moral character of his
native District; and long will that District,
in common with the whole State, deplore his loss.
