Notes for Christian Thomas Harbaugh:
Harbaugh History by Cora Bell (Harbaugh) Cooprider, 1947 p.79: "According to the Maryland Archives (21:331) he was "Enzin. apt. Christian Smith's Cp., Frederick Co., Militia, commissioned Mar 29, 1779. (Apple's Church and graceham Church records at the York Hist. Society) * Burials at Graceham.

An articleby David Loos, of the Frederiick News Post, dated July 21, 2003 stated" Dept paid to Revolution-era son/ Harbaugh lived, died in Frederick Graceham- Christian Harbaugh, who died more than 167 years ago, was remembered Sunday for his patroitism and Revolutionary War-era militia service during a simple graveside rededeication service.
the cermony, held on the hilltop cemetery of Graceham Moravian church near Thurmont, was orchestrated by the Frederick CountyChapter of the Sons of the American revolution (SAR) in what has become an annual eveny to recognize an individual for his or her service during the war.

Organizers said Mr. Harbaugh was chosen because descendants of his are thought to still live in the area, some of whom may be members of the Church congregation.

'We definetly have a few Harbaughs in our church and there are others in the area" said the Rev, Jeffrey Gebris, pastor of Graceham Moravian church.

"We do this to remember tham and to mark the horor and purpose in giving us a free county" said the Rev. Frederick Pyne, a retired Episcipalrector and President of SAR's Sgt. Lawrence Everhart Chapter in Frederick.

Both the Rev. Pyne and the Rev. Gebris spoke briefly at the ceremony, which included a procession by the SAR Color Guard.

A small SAR marker was recently placed at the grave site of Mr. harbaugh, who died March 23, 1836, at the age of 82. He spent his entire life in the northern Frederick County area.

"Christian harbaugh was a farmer, but realized that efforts needed to be made to stronly resist the British tyrany of dominance over American lives, movement and business", the Rev. Pyne said Sp he stepped forward and became an ensign in the 34th Battalion of the Maryland Militia on 23 March 1779.

According to the Rev. Pyne, who researched the life of Mr. harbaugh, the soldier's duties with the militia included watching ship and troop0 movements, observing roads and bridges, assisting with the moving and storage of supplies and guarding prisoners.

While in service, Mr. Harbaugh married Maria Elizabeth Willar. The couple had 12 children.

"We recall the endle3ss debt we owe to him and his fellow patroits." the Rev. Pyne said.

"We have achieved at least two of the SAR objectives here today" said Dr. James Dearworth, president of the Maryland Society of Sons of the American revolution.

"These objectives include perputating the memory of those patroits who achieved our independence---and to acquire and maintain records, as well as relics and landmarks."

Toward the end of the ceremonhy the SAR Color Guard, dressed in period military uniforms, gave a three round musket salute to Mr. harbaugh, a process drawn out for several minutes as the five guardsmen meticulously reloaded their muskets each time.>
