Jacob Haldeman
Birth: Oct. 7, 1722, Switzerland
Death: Feb. 27, 1783
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA

The following is from the Haldeman papers in the Dauphin County Historical Society :

"Jacob Haldeman was elected to be a member of the Committee of Public Safety for Rapho Township , Lancaster Cty. , PA during the Revolutionary War . Prior to the breakout of hostilities in Pennsylvania with Great Britain , the Committee of Safety was established by the legislature to act as an executive body for providing defenses of the state against invasion and insurrection , for calling up men to arms , and providing them with arms , ammunition , and supplies . George Ross ( later a relative through marriage ) was a leading member of this committee upon its formation . Benjamin Franklin was the President and Col. George Ross was the Vice - President of this group . The executive orders of the committee filtered down to the county level and then to the township level . Jacob's duties were to see that Rapho Township's quota of men , supplies , and ammunition were met , that the fighting men's families were provided for , that a civil defense system was set up in case of invasion , and that insurriction of any type in his area was stopped or reported on . In Lancaster County there was a large number of Quakers , Mennonites , and Germans that were opposed to bearing arms and other of British birth that adhered to the British cause . ( Authority for Jacob's service , PA Archives , Series 13 , Vol. 1 { or I ? } pg. 294 ) "
