Col. John Middleton Huger, a distinguished member of an old Southeran family died at his late residence, 537 Fifth Avenue, yesterday morning. His father was Judge Daniel Elliott Huger, United States Senator from South Carolina for a number of years. His grandfather, on his mother's side, was Arthur Middleton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The Hugers were Huguenots, who settled in this country in the sixteenth century. Colonel Huger was a graduate of the University of South Carolina. Before entering college, he attended a Western school, and was a schoolmate of the late Hamilton Fish. A friendship was contracted between the two at that time which lasted through their lives. Huger married, at the age of twenty three, the daughter of Colonel James S. Deas, a South Carolina family. Shortly after his marriage he left Charleston and occupied himself in sugar plantations in Louisiana. He had large plantations on Red River and on the island of Cote Blanche, in the Gulf. In 1835, at the outbreak of the Seminole war, he was appointed Adjutant General with the rank of Major, under General Moore in the brigade of North Alabama troops. He distinguished himself by many acts of bravery in that war. After the Seminole war he returned to his sugar plantation, where he remained until the outbreak of the civil war, when he entered the service of the Confederate Army as Colonel under General Bragg. After the war he retired from active business and went to New Orleans with his family, where he lived until 1885. His wife died in 1890. He had seven children, six of whom, three sons and three daughters, are living. His eldest son is Colonel Daniel Huger of Mobile, Alabama. He is a member of the Manhattan Club of this city. Another son is Capt. William Huger of New Orleans, President of the New Orleans Stock Exchange. His third son is Capt. Charles Huger of Mobile, Alabama. His daughter, Miss Huger, lived with him at 537 Fifth Avenue. His other daughters are Mrs. William Branford Frost of Charleston, South Carolina, and Mrs. Alexander Warley of New Orleans, who husband, Capt Warley, was in the United States Navy before the war, and resigned at the beginning of the war and became Captain of the Confederate man of war Albermarle, and afterward of the iron clad Louisiana. He is now a veteran of the Mexican war. Colonel Huger has always been in good health. He died of old age. His remains were sent to Mobile yesterday, where they will be interred in the family vault.

Huger was also the father of Isabella Middleton Huger who married Lieutenant A. F. Warley on December 1, 1862.
