      • Huger was approximately 38 years old in 1780, and was approximately 55 when he died.

  • Nicholas Butler, Ph.D., Special Collections Manager, Charleston County Public Library:
    "Isaac Huger is a slippery guy. His place of burial has eluded me and a host of other researchers. He does not appear in the cemeteries of St. Philip's or St. Michael's, even though he was one a churchwarden at St. Philip's and had his children baptized there. His obituary, in the City Gazette, 2 November 1797, does not mention a place of burial. None of the genealogical sources that I found say anything about a grave. I suspect he was taken back to his plantation for a private burial.

  • Mary Theresa Carver, Biographical Sketches of thee Generals of the Continental Army of the Revolution, publ. 1889, p.138:
    "He died on the 17th of October, 1797, and was buried on the banks of the Ashley River, South Carolina."

    "Sadly, according to Arthur Middleton Huger's 1900 memoirs, there is no memorial, public or private, to General Huger. Charlton de Saussure, M.D., states in Lowcountry Carolina Families, Southern Historical Press, Greenville, S.C., 1997, states that Huger "was buried in private cemetery near Huger's Bridge, East Fork Cooper River".
