Do you have anything on more recent PA Logans. I have Elmer W.Logan, b. 1864 in Gordan PA. Looking to go back, Elmers Father might have been Jeremiah as he was older and from the same area. Elmer later named one son Jeremiah. Elmer married Elizabeth Wilson and moved to NJ. Any Info appreciated.

From a reference of W.H. Clemens, Logan Family Records, Alexander, William and a third unknown brother landed at Philadephia in 1738. He indicates at least two of the three , Alexander William moved inland to the end of the Cumberland Trail, Carlisle.

Another account names Alexander by name while referencing the three brothers arrival in 1738. Further it is noted they were indeed cousins of Jame Logan, secretary to Wm. Penn.
Clemens also has record of Alexander being a son of William. Authorization to survey a tract of land was given to William Feb. 24th, 1763. Apparently William granted a parcel to his son, Alexander by a will dated 12 July, 1768. The possibility of William being the father to Alexander seems strong in light of these records.

I would like to establish the generation of Alexander,William and possibly the John you make reference to. Could John be the unnamed brother arriving in 1738? It seems likely the brother would continue together to Carlisle, Cumberland Co. What do you think?

I'm very happy to have a link to the "Ancient Logans"(of Scotland) as I have named them to keep the files, names etc straight! Alexander appears to be a very popular name and our Alexanders may be cousins???or the same person??

Something to think about in the new century!

One more thing I know others have chosen otherwise which I am always willing to listen to any evidence.However I have strong evidence that suggest that this John Logan from Cumberland the father of David Mar. in Pa.before 1740 and moved to Va. and is the father of the famous Ky.Pioneer Gen.Ben Logan

Hi again, Don,
I have our John Logan, the white one, dated at 1710 for birth and 1757 for death. Do you have records on either of these leading you to think it was earlier?

Hi Don, I keep having more questions to ask. I should have read ALL the posts first, I guess. William's daughter, Elizabeth married into my husbands direct line, to Joel Buffington. We have no hard documentation. Would you be willing to share copies of the wills? or perhaps anything else that would be pertinant, or tell me where to find them? I'd be willing to cover any costs of course.It would be a wonderful surprise for Randy.

Don,I have in our records that William Logan was married to a Mary Smith, but have found no more information on her.Do you know if anyone has a family tree that shows siblings, and more information on all these Logans?
