|Birth: ||Oct. 12, 1813|
|Death: ||Sep. 22, 1872|
(Son of *Matthew & Dorcas Witherspoon Harbison of N.C.)
MCTC by Fred Hawkins.
*Matthew Harbison, Sr. 'deeded to the Public for a lot or parcel of ground for a Public burying place or graveyard.'
The parcel was 5/8 of an acre. It is not known whether or not Matthew Harbison, Sr. and other members of his family are buried here but at least one son is known to have been interred here.)
Santa Fe Items -- A very large crowd was in attendance at church last Sunday to hear the funeral service of our old friend, Mr. Joshua Harbison. The church could not hold the congregation, and all were not able to hear the interesting and affecting sermon. -- Columbia Herald, 30 May, 1873.
(I'm not certain what to make of this considering the date of death listed. The funeral was held on May 25, 1873. There is a record of a Joshua T. Harbison marrying Mary C. Fly in 1853.)
