DALCHO, Frederick, physician, born in London, England, in 1770; died in Charleston, South Carolina, 24 November 1836. His father, a distinguished officer under Frederick the Great had retired to England for his health, and at his death Frederick came to Baltimore, Maryland, at the invitation of his uncle, who had removed to that place a few years before. Here he received a classical education, and then studied medicine, giving special attention to botany. He then entered the medical department, of the army, and was stationed at Fort Johnson, Charleston harbor, but, in consequence of some difficulty with his brother officers, resigned in 1799, and practiced in Charleston, where he was active in establishing the botanical garden. About 1807 he left his practice and became one of the editors of the Charleston "Courier," a daily Federal newspaper. He began to be interested in theological studies in 1811, was ordained deacon in the Protestant Episcopal Church in 1814, and priest in 1818. On 23 February 1819, he became assistant minister of St. Michael's Church, Charleston, where he remained until his death. A monument, erected to his memory by the vestry, stands near the south door of the Church. Dr. Dalcho published "The Evidence of the Divinity of Our Saviour" (Charleston, 1820);" Historical Account of the Protestant Episcopal Church in South Carolina" (1820); and "Ahiman Rezon," for the use of freemasons (1822).
