The Story of Ensign Thomas Huling
Huling was an American Revolutionary War patriot who
served in the Majors Company, Third Pennsylvania
Regiment throughout the Conflict. Following the
War, he was appointed to the Commission to explore the
Susquehanna and Juniata rivers, and he filed his report
on January 30, 1790.
He came from a
family of patriots, and among his many relatives who
served in the Continental Army were his father, Marcus
Huling Sr., and his brothers, Marcus Huling Jr. and
James Huling. His son, Thomas Byers Huling, came
to Texas in 1831 and participated in the winning of
Texas Independence by hauling supplies from New Orleans
for the Texas Army.
A tradition of love
of freedom has ever been manifest in the Huling family,
beginning with its origin as a French Huguenot family.
