Hogg, John

by Henry A. Robertson, Jr., 1988

5 Feb. 1765–28 Oct. 1826

John Hogg, legislator, arrived in Wilmington from Anstruther, Fife, Scotland, about 1797. He, it is assumed, was a cousin of Robert, John, and James Hogg of the mercantile house of Hogg and Campbell—with branches in Wilmington, Cross Creek, Hillsborough, and elsewhere—and a member of that firm. Hogg was elected to the legislature from Hillsborough in 1794 and 1796. In 1809 he contributed $25 to the building fund for the Main or South Building at The University of North Carolina. He died in Fayetteville.
