No. 1877. WEST POINT CLASS OF 1860
Died, July 10, 1897, at Roanoke, Va., aged 60
The death of Colonel FRANK HUGER at Roanoke, Va., a few days ago removed from this life another member of the old army, a soldier and a true gentleman of the old school now so rare. Colonel Huger was from South Carolina and was graduated fronm West Point in the class of I86o, served as a Second Lieutenant in the Tenth Infantry until June, 1861, when, acting upon his convictions, he resigned his commission and joined his fortunes with the Confederate States Army, serving as a Colonel of the regular artillery in that movement. Since the war Colonel Huger had been in the railroad business and was General Superintendent of Transportation of the Norfolk and Western Railway. He came from an old army family, his father being Major Benjamin Huger, formerly of the Ordnance Department, and his grandfather was General Thomas Pinckney of the Army of the Revolution and first minister from the United States to the Court of St. James. He was also a brother of Mr. Thomas Pinckney, now in charge of the interests of the Norfolk and Western Railway in New York. Colonel Huger was laid to rest in Lynchburg, Va., leaving a host of friends to mourn the loss of so genial and kind-hearted a gentleman. ARMY AND NAVY REGISTER.
