Hugg, Isaac

Hugg, Isaac a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Gloucester, now Camden County, New Jersey, about 1814. But little is known of his early life. He was converted in 1841, licensed to preach about 1844, and joined the New Jersey Conference in 1845. Thenceforward he filled with zeal and efficiency the several positions assigned him, being in many places eminently useful. On Rome and Wantage Circuit, on Cedarville charge and elsewhere, he had extensive and powerful revivals of religion, and founded the first Methodist society at the village of Cranberry, N. J., consisting at first of seven members, which, before the year closed, increased to fifty. About 1855, while laboring on Vernon Circuit, he had his hip dislocated by a fall from his carriage, which caused him a great deal of suffering, and in the spring of 1864, being pressed by increasing affliction, he was obliged to take a superannuated relation, and settled at Pointville, in Burlington County. Here he labored as he had ability, being greatly beloved by the people. He died suddenly, while preparing to re-enter the active work of the ministry, April 5, 1866. "Hugg was emphatically a good man: the poor knew well how to prize him, and the children everywhere loved him. He was a good preacher, and, when health permitted, a faithful pastor." — New Jersey Conf. Minutes, 1867.
