Born c.1751, Abijah Harrison was a long-lived veteran of the Revolutionary War who had served as a private in the Essex County, NJ, militia. Married to the former Sarah Ogden (1756-1821) in 1773, he survived her by a quarter of a century, and died in his 95th year in 1846.
His name is among those listed on the D.A.R. monument near the front door of the First Presbyterian Church of Orange, NJ. This memorial, which consists of a bonze plaque affixed to a boulder, was created in 1931 to honor Revolutionary War veterans buried in the churchyard.
