Daniel Hugunin Edit Profile
He pursued classical studies. He served as a lieutenant in the War of 1812 and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Queenston Heights. At the United States House of Representatives elections in New York, 1824, Hugunin received a majority of the votes cast in the 20th congressional district, but while the greater part of the votes was returned for "Daniel Hugunin, jun.", a smaller part was returned for "Daniel Hugunin, junior" and "Daniel Hugunin".
The votes for the latter two variants were counted as scattering, giving a plurality to Egbert Ten Eyck, the incumbent Jacksonian congressman. Hugunin contested the election of Ten Eyck, and was seated as an Adams man in the 19th United States Congress on December 15, 1825, holding office until March 3, 1827. In 1828, Hugunin was elected one of the first trustees of the Village of Oswego.
On March 15, 1841, he was appointed by President William Henry Harrison as United States Marshal for Wisconsin Territory. He remained in office until August 31, 1844, when Charles M. Prevost was appointed to succeed Hugunin. Hugunin later served as the harbor master at Kenosha.
He died of a stroke on June 20, 1850 and was buried at Green Ridge Cemetery in Kenosha.
