Our Revolutionary Ancestor is James Habersham, Jr. of Savannah, Georgia. He was a colonial merchant who actively opposed the revenue acts of British Parliament in 1775. He served on the Board of Trustees created in 1785 to establish the University of Georgia, and was Speaker of the General Assembly in 1782 and in 1784.

His home is one of the oldest buildings in Savannah, The Olde Pink House, a brick Georgian mansion that was constructed in 1771 as his primary residence. Later, the home was converted into the Planterís Bank and the First State Bank of Georgia. The Olde Pink House was transformed into a restaurant in 1971.
