David Fisher Bragunier; son of David Bragunier (1797-1820) & Sally (Sarah) Geiger (circa 1796-1826); David Fisher was born on 10 Jun 1819 in Hagerstown, Maryland; died on 21 May 1862 in Sharpsburg, Maryland while in the Civil War.  David married on 25 Dec 1849 in Middleburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania to Elizabeth (Lizzie) Smith (born about 1814 in MD).

1850 census
   for Boonsboro Distr. Washington County Maryland, list David as 31, farmer, wife Elizabeth 36 and daughter Eliza aged 8.
1860 census
   list David as living in Clearsprings District with wife and two children.
1870 Census
    for Hagerstown Maryland, shows Elizabeth ae 53, a nurse, in whose household were Jacob and Sophia Stouffer ae 47 & 44      and Sally Bragonier ae 19 a glove maker and also Mary Bragonier ae 12.

In 1890 Elizabeth Smith Bragunier was living in Pinesburg, Washington Co., Maryland and in 1891 in Williamsport.  I have no idea if Elizabeth remarried after David's death.

Elizabeth applied for a pension (#115529) since her husband drowned while serving in the Civil War.  However her pension application was denied (not granted) because they said David's drowning death was not in the line of duty.
