According to Hetrina's List of Hessian Soldiers, Mathias Haupt was from Strassburg.  He was 20 years of age in 1777.  He served as a Canonier with the Hanau Artillery.  In May of 1778, Mathias Haupt deserted his troops in the Winter Hill area of Boston MA.  Hessian researcher, Clifford Neal Smith, cites that Mathias left his troops on May 15, 1778 in Winter Hill and then enlisted to serve with the American Forces.

While with the Americans, Johann Mathias Haupt served in Armand's Legion which, by some sources, appears to have been composed of Pennsylvania Germans and others from Loudon Co., VA.  On May 10, 1777 the Continental Congress commisioned Charles Armand Tuffin, Marquis de la Rouerie of France, as a Colonel and authorized him to raise this Corp. 

Johann Mathias Haupt enlisted by June 1778 in Boston, MA.  He was discharged at York, PA in 1783.  His pension was applied for on April 15, 1818.  Later, his widow Elizabeth would be allowed pension on application of Sept. 22, 1838.  In the M-246 series of microfilm located in the National Archives - filmstrip #115, Mathias Haupt is listed as being under the command of Captain Claudius deBert in June 1778.  DeBert was one of four captains under the command of Charles Armand.

Though, Johann Mathias and his wife Elizabeth, were married in a Lutheran Church this couple and their family were members of and regularly attended St. Peter's Pro-Cathedral Catholic Church in Baltimore, MD.

It should be noted that there is a Strassburg, Hessen and a Strassburg/Strasbourg, Alsace (now in France).
