Hide Profile

Francis Kinloch Huger was born in Charleston, South Carolina, in September, 1773, and died there in 1855. At the age of eight, he was sent to study in England, remaining abroad until he had finished his education and medical studies. He continued his medical studies at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and received his M.D. He returned to South Carolina and became a planter in Santee rather than practicing medicine. He served in the War of 1812 and after that served in the South Carolina Legislature for several terms. In 1826 he and his family moved to Pendleton.

Both Huger and Bollman were afterwards captured and confined at Olmutz until their release in 1795.
