Jereboam O. Beauchamp
(died 1826)

Farewell, child of sorrow!
For you, I have lived; for you, I die.

Ann Cooke Beauchamp had, only a few minutes before, stabbed herself to death. A few minutes later, a bleeding Beauchamp whose own suicide attempt had been less successful, was hung for the murder of Colonel Solomon P. Sharp, who Ann had claimed raped her.
