    Jacob Horger served as a Private in Thompson's South Carolina Militia Regiment under Captain Rumph. He appeared on Captain Rumph payroll at least one time with 140 days on duty.  Captain Rumph commanded a company of Calvary and appears to have been quite active until the war ended. The company was in constant conflict with the many Tories in the area and appear to have been in Charleston when the English took control. Jacob Horger died after 28 June 1807 probably in South Carolina.
